Tooth of Time is chewing on me  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with Shaefers Peak. Super iconic with amazing views. The only thing not good about this peak is going down the Stockade Trail :(.

Upper Clark's Fork to Tooth  Sucess!

My crew awoke at 3:00 am and hiked 8 miles to the Tooth of Time and we arrived at the summit just minutes before sunrise. Quite an enlightening experience!

Philmont Trek 08-02N  Sucess!

My first scramble. I remember my entire crew being dehydrated since we hadn't quite prepared for the side trip. Still a fond memory for me.

twice 71 and 72  Sucess!

My first real summit with some great friends. The second time we climbed it in the dark to see the sun rise. Long before head lamps. If I ever go back it will be with rock shoes and a rope.

Fun Scramble  Sucess!

Done with group 705G2 on trekking Route 12. One of my first experiences hiking up a rocky prominence, I loved it!

Training  Sucess!

The first time I was up here we didn't actually make the summit. So this was my first time to the top and I did it on our Ranger training. Such a cool peak

Long hike and unsucessful

The crew hauled a few gallons of water up to Shaeffer's pass camp and attempted to make it to the Tooth. Crew opted to turn back due to early stages of dehydration for multiple members, as well as fatigue from long day hiking.

Great views  Sucess!

Loved Philmont and the Tooth of Time was an excellent way to finish our trek. Great vistas! Would love to go back again!

summer '94  Sucess!

stopped by the Tooth on our way back to base camp. Nice views from the top. We had a minor scare when a sofa-sized boulder we were sitting on started to slide, but luckily it stopped.
On tour with Scout Troop 232 from San Jose, CA.

A long time ago  Sucess!

Hiked to the top as part of a Philmont scout trip in my teens (mid 1980s). It was a fun, challenging week.

Last Day

Woke up at 3am and hiked out of Ponderosa Park to see the Sunrise. It was amazing. We hiked it July 2007 on our last day of our Philmont Trek.

Great memories  Sucess!

Climbed the Tooth at the end of my '95 and '97 treks. Great way to finish. But the hike back down to basecamp always seemed to drag on forever.

Philmont trek 2002  Sucess!

I want to go back to Philmont!

Tooth of Time, Summer 2001 and 2003  Sucess!

Hiked it as a staff member of Philmont (Sawmill and Whiteman Vega) in 2003--always beautiful from the top of the Tooth.

What a way to end a Philmont trek.

Did it!  Sucess!

My Philmont trek was the best! Not only did I get to climb Baldy but I got to knock off the Tooth! This was the closing thrill of our 10 day trek! I'll never forget it because we got up at 4:00 AM to watch the sun rise on the top! It was awesome!
