Incredible views in all directions. Windy on the ridge heading up followed by no wind at the summit -- not sure why. More hikers on top arrived via four wheel drive road from Fairplay.

Great trail for a first 14er. Was a little dicey toward the top with the narrow ridge.

There are no "easy" 14ers, of course. But this is a great mountain to start with! Easier than most 14ers and a little taste of exposure on the ridge. There is an optional fun scramble up the talus field below the Dauntless Mine, that was my favorite part of the climb! Summit is broad and flat with tons of places to rest and drink champagne ;)

Great hike for your first 14er. Make sure to summit before noon or you may get bad weather. Bring a hiking pole. While I saw several dogs, it seemed a bit cruel for their feet. Owners discretion but I suggest leaving them home. Great views of Leadville and Fairplay. I came up from Fairplay - county rd 18 and drove about 10 miles on a dirt road. Several people but not overcrowded for a Wednesday. Experienced wind and hail on the way down.
