"Drive up to Summit Lake. Had the intention of hiking up the short route up to the summit but we missed the trail and hiked all the way up the road. About 6 miles up, summited at 4:15 and took the trail down. 7.5 miles total. " - Mount Evans, aenea9881, Sep 16, 2018
"I came up the Hessie trail from Eldora and made my way to the far end of Jasper Lake. I lost the trail to Storm Lake at some point and decided to head up the ridge to Pt. 12,695. I walked over to Mount Jasper and reached the summit as skies were turning dark with storm clouds. I quickly descended and walked over to the Devil's Thumb trail and returned to the trailhead." - Mount Jasper, WaxDr, Aug 17, 2018
"Kelso-Grays-Torreys-Grizzly-Cupid traverse 20.82km with 2,241m gain in 9:00hrs The third day brought much better and quieter weather, was a bit windy and 4,000m+ but at least no showers or thunderstorms. A road to Grays trailhead is 4.8km one way from I-70 and requires a 4x4. After initial 800m got concerned about our rental Santa Fe and decided to walk it up. Should've driven the road the whole way, would've saved me 4km in distance and 300m gain. Except of few washed out spots, it was completely fine. The smallest/lowest car I saw at the trailhead, was a BMW sedan. The rest wa" - Grays Peak, alexp, Aug 7, 2018
"Mt Evans - West Evans - The Sawtooth - Mt Bierstadt - Mt Spalding 9.8km with 500m gain in 4:15hrs While it looks like a cheat day: short, low gain and starting from the highest point which is accessible by car... but it definitely didn't feel like that. First of all, it was for the first time when I was consciously aware of the altitude: my legs simply weren't moving uphill. Similar to some cars at elevations 3,500m+: doesn't matter how much one presses on a gas pedal, it barely moves (actually we saw a couple of such on the road, a Jeep and Subaru). It was fine for me to go on flat " - Mount Evans, alexp, Aug 6, 2018
"Longs Peak - Storm Peak - Mt Lady Washington (attempt) - Battle Mountain - Pine Ridge 23.61km with 1,447m gain in 8:30 car-to-car In Canada, even the mountains are polite. I have never been kicked out from the mountains in such a way: two hail and thunderstorms within just 2 or 3 hours. 1. Longs Peak, 4,360m Started with a nice weather, summited Longs in under 4 hours. Only to see a storm coming my way. Stayed at the summit not more than 2 minutes: just few photos, one text message and had to hurry down. Almost was done with the traverses and got hit with hail and rain before the keyh" - Longs Peak, alexp, Aug 5, 2018
