    This was my first summit and it was amazing. It was scary at parts, but the accomplishment was well worth it. I have really never hiked before and I was able to make it to the summit, and the people...

    I have climbed Yam many times, but chose to add my Easy Street beta as a summit log at Peakware. Once you make the hump to the base of the wall, Easy Street is one of several variations towards the...

    Willa and I thought this outing was entertaining. It was a nice mix of numerous scramble elements that kept us interested at all times. Not hard to see why it's so popular with mountain enthusiasts...

    My very first multi-pitch climb. Had great weather (especially for mid october). No leading for me, just seconding up. Pretty easy climb, with just one short 5.

    Great hike, but not for the beginner. We started up taking the West route, bad decision. Too much skree and very hard going. Coming down was a breeze though.

    A great easy scramble with good views of the front ranges and eastern plains.

    This is an easy scramble with one difficult exposed section that has two options. A down climb or a traverse on a narrow ledge. Views of the Bow River Valley and the parries are excellent.
