Four of us camped at the trailhead and left at 4:40 the next morning. We summited at 9am, took some awesome photos at the top, and headed down. On our way from the road to the parking lot, we saw three ambulances and tons of rescue workers. Apparently, a person had taken a tumble and broke many ribs and other bones. We were fortunate enough to make it out ok though. Total time took 9 hours, due to some knee problems towards the end. Amazingly beautiful climb!!
Climbed for Project54.org, one of the best fundraisers I know of.
Left Denver at 3am, started hiking at 5:45. Reached the summit at 8am, then went on to climb Oxford, and then re-summited Mount Belford. A beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky! What a painful descent though...
