Rogers Peak  
Condition Updates  
Route: from Mount Warren
Posted On: 2022-07-13, By: mtngoatwithstyle
Info: Summer conditions.From Warren I went down to the saddle and then went left before the ridge up to Rogers Pk where I found goat trails that took me all the way almost to summit. Met another hiker, but the whole day it was just pikas, bighorn sheep, marmots, ravens and myself.

Info: Broke trail through the trees cutting two switchbacks on the road. Snowshoes needed below tree line. Above tree line Microspikes very helpful. Watch out for occasional trap door snow, both me and my partner got shin bruises from trap doors. Plenty of wind and blowing snow above 12k 
Route: North Slopes

Info: Hwy 103 to Echo Lake was icy and snowpacked in the morning but 50 % dry by the afternoon. I hiked up the Mt Evans road to the base of Rogers Pk. The Mt Evans road is mostly covered in snow, 3-6 in deep. Gale force winds out of the west on the slopes of Rogers Pk. Mountain Forecast predicted 25-30mph in the Rogers Pk area at 13000 ft, but the actual winds were much stronger. 
Route: Echo-Chicago-Evans loop

Info: Made an extended loop of this to serve as a conditioning hike and pick up a couple new 13ers - started at Echo Lake, dropped down into the valley then up past Chicago Lakes (following Evans West Ridge from Echo Lake route) but at Summit Lake doubled back to go over Warren then Rogers then followed the ridge down to connect with the trail running alongside Goliath. Then hiked alongside the road to get back to Echo Lake. The valley was pretty muddy. Only one extremely trivial snowfield on the route just before the final rise to Summit Lake. Otherwise summer conditions. Hardly anyone at Echo Lake at 2:30am but packed to the max at 11am. Summit Lake parking was already crowded at 5:30am - they apparently don't block the road overnight despite the reservation system. Not another soul on Warren/Rogers but I could see the normal army of ants over on Evans. Beautiful weather in the am but storms clouds were building by the time I left. 
Route: Summit Lake

Info: Summer conditions. Would have to go out of your way to step in snow. Although no trail, straightforward hike over Warren/Rogers from Summit Lake. Easy peasy.

Info: Climbed Warren, Rogers, “Epaulie”, and Epaulet Mtn (unranked) today. Nothing required flotation and I did it all without traction although it won't hurt to bring. Poles came in handy on a couple occasions. Was going to take a trip up to Spalding and Gray Wolf as well but wasn't feeling it today, a couple I talked to turned around on the former because Spalding's east ridge requires traction at the moment. 
Route: Northeast Ridge form Road

Info: Rogers and Warren from the gate closure. No snow on route and pretty straight-forward. Took the road, cutting the switchback, until I started heading towards Rogers at the saddle, marked 12,152 on the USA Topo map. It was 12.5 miles RT, so a nice "honest" way to get these 13ers. Lots of bikers and the Echo lake TH, gate closure, and road between were filled with cars looking down around noon. About half of the closure lot was full when I arrived at 6:30. Also, attached is the north side of Evans if you're planning that. 
Route: Chicago Lakes

Info: No traction carried and wouldn't have used if carried. Ascended via Chicago Lakes and descended via the rige/road back to Echo Lake. 
Route: From Echo Lake

Info: Road from Echo Lake was boot packed and/or still showing a decent amount of pavement. Used snowshoes to cut through the trees to avoid one of the turns of the road saving some distance. Nice sugary snow! Once above treeline, everything was pretty bare. 
Route: From Summit Lake
Posted On: 2019-10-05, By: HikesInGeologicTime
Info: Started shortly after noon because a) you can do that at this time of year! and b) because the National Weather Service said winds were supposed to die down in the afternoon. Hahahahahaaaa. I weigh 160 lbs. (probably 170-175, total, factoring in the weight of my pack and fully loaded ski jacket) and had to dig my heels in hard a few times to avoid getting blown over near Rogers' summit. Descended to the road in order to avoid getting gusted off the otherwise forgiving ridge entirely. Glad I did that, though bear in mind that if you do this after having started at or near Summit Lake, you'll be going back *up*hill on the road. It's an easy grade, but I completely understand the sentiments of those morally opposed to going back uphill in order to get back to their cars! All told, though, Warren and Rogers are great for a quick and easy alpine summit long as you do them tomorrow. Once the Mount Evans road closes on Monday, they'll be way more of a slog. 
Route: Echo Lake

Info: Bone dry. Started at Echo Lake and worked my way up to treeline, easy to find a path with little understory and using game trails. Made a beeline to Goliath Peak then on to Rogers and Warren. Wildflowers are starting to look nice. 
Route: Echo Lake Loop

Info: Echo Lake -> Goliath -> Rogers -> Warren -> Spalding -> Gray Wolf -> Echo Lake loop almost entirely clear. The small amount of snow was easily avoidable.
