Up Donner's Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day without a cloud in the sky! Gained the ridge at the start and a fun climb up. Had to drop down ~200 ft about a 1/3 of the way up to avoid some technical climbing, but it appears you can make this ridge as difficult as you want. Overall, some easy 4th class moves with some 3rd class scrambling.

CCY third!  Sucess!

Wonderful hike and a terrific afternoon with amazing views and lots of wildlife. On top of Chapin be sure to head back west and look down at the spires. Be careful not to descend to much on the way back from Ypsilon in order to pick up the trail between Chiquita and Chapin.

Y Couloir  Sucess!

Surprised to see the Y Couloir not listed as a route for this peak. Nevertheless, this was a fun climb, a little steep, but cool. RMNP has so many great mtns...

Route Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: august 2008  Sucess!

I climbed Mount Ypsilon as the final summit of the day after climbing Mount Chapin and Mount Chiquita. Make sure you're acclimatised well, otherwise you'll feel the altitude...

SW Ridge  Sucess!

The final summit from Chiquita and Chapin. A beautiful day. There is more or less a trail to the first summit, Chapin

Peak 3 of 3  Sucess!

Finished up the CCY trek by reaching Ypsilon's summit at 10:20am
Dark clouds started forming at 11:00 and we hoofed it back down.
We got pelted by a rain/sleet storm by the time we got back to the Chiquita-Chapin ridge which was actually kind of fun. Overall a great outing!

Standard route  Sucess!

Passed the two parties that were ahead of us, and had the summit to ourselves for a minute or two, until a helmeted climber reached the top from a ridge climb. His route made my hike seem like child's play. Summit was excellent for views, but got crowded very quickly at an early hour.
