Success at 14,000 feet
It's Monday eve, and the climb is over. It went GREAT!! At least the knees did. The climb was tougher than I imagined, with a 1 mile trail, straight up the east side of Evans, going some 1450 vertical feet. Great news: while my lungs hungered for oxygen, and my leg muscles worked really hard (sore tonight), I will tell you that I felt not one pain in my knees throughout the entire ascent...for the first time in 7 years. Much of the ascent was like climbing 2 stair steps at a time, and put plenty of test on both knees. The final climb from the parking lot on Evans to the actual summit was easier, but included a descent-- again, no pain at all! This gives me hope for returning to full "roundtrip" 14ers again next year.
