Photos of crowded peaks?

Postby Craig Cook » Fri Sep 14, 2012 9:21 am

Does anyone have a picture of a very crowded summit I could use (and credit you with) for a college project?

Surely someone has a Bierstadt or Grays photo with a hundred people up there, right? :-D

I have several on my laptop at home, but I'm at work right now. I'll try to remember to post them later. I have one of Grays and one of Yale for sure. One of Massive too I think.

How do people hike in jeans? I know it is just G & T, but isn't it super uncomfortable?

Bierstadt, taken from the east ridge early this summer, and the parking area by Guanella Pass on that same day.

Wow, Wetterhorn used to be a nice green summit. Now it looks like it has been trampled.

Does it have to be a Colorado 14er? Search "Half Dome cables."

This is the best I got, Bierstadt in Mid-June two years ago.

I try my damnedest to avoid mountains like these in summer now.
