An Alternative to the traditional North Ridge Line, which is a couple of miles longer, and easier on the lungs.  You are rewarded with views of "The Diamond", on the neighboring 14er, Longs Peak (14,259'), that could only be seen from the vantage of the summit of Mount Lady Washington (13,288').  "The Lady" will tempt you with views of other possible climbs, of less lofty, but still very enjoyable climbs.  Neighboring climbs such as the Twin Sisters, Lily Mountain, Estes Cone, and Battle Mountain are year 'round hikes that will reward you with good views, and the feeling of success.  And if you're up to it, you can do the "mother of climbs" in northern Colorado... longs Peak.

Just down from this hike. Quite the bouldering route! Beautiful day. Awesome view of Longs peak. Add a mile to the advertised distance for parking unless you are very lucky. Longs peak trail is always crowded but when you leave the trail you have Lady Washington all to yourself.
