Summer 2013 Colorado retro reports

As described on the Retro Reports info page, I plan to incorporate hiking trips from the past along with current hikes, and will backdate the reports so they can be organized by actual hike dates. However, I plan to write these “retro reports” in batches and upload them en masse to make it easier and I don’t want to directly mix new stuff with tons of old stuff. This is a meta-post linking to the current batch of 4 retro posts from my August 2013 trip to Colorado:

August 2013 in Colorado: Part I – Dodging the monsoon

August 2013 in Colorado: Part II – Names and No Names

August 2013 in Colorado: Part III – Peak, James Peak

August 2013 in Colorado: Part IV – To kilopeak

August 2013 in Colorado, Part III – Peak, James Peak

James Peak is one of the more straightforward 13ers in northern Colorado, but I had never quite managed to climb it yet.  I wanted to use the more remote route from the north to pick up other peaks on the same day, but that is a much longer drive than a popular route from the east.
