Route: Coal Camp Canyon
Posted On: 2022-05-08, By: d_baker
Info: Southern aspects on the peaks to W of Princeton very dry. We didn't carry snowshoes and didn't step on snow until treeline and that wasn't even necessary. Stupid approach up steep treed slopes. 2nd time I've used this approach for same peak. I'm not very smart, or I am forgetful. I hope not to use this approach again, lol.

Info: Alpine Cemetery -> 13626 -> 13317 -> 13078 -> Poplar Gulch was entirely free of any snow from last week's storm. It was pretty windy and a little chilly at times on the traverse.

Info: If you're looking for a class 1 trail all the way to the summit of a ranked 13er with entirely summer conditions, this is your ticket. 
Route: From Point 13,317

Info: Completely dry. If ascending Point 12,837 like we did there's one short snow crossing but the remaining ascent is dry. We attempted to go down Green Timber Gulch and turned around. There was still HUGE amounts of snow. DO NOT go down Green Timber Gulch without boots, insulation, waterproof gear, etc., and perhaps most importantly, ample time, for at least another couple of weeks. The snow there was waist deep, completely unsupportive, soaking wet, and extended far below treeline. Instead we went down Poplar Gulch, which was 99% dry, and hitched a ride back to Cottonwood Lake. 
Route: Poplar Gulch

Info: The road St. Elmo is plowed. There's parking just east of St. Elmo. Arrive early if you want a place to park. Otherwise, you'll be parking further back on the road. On the way to St. Elmo, we passed the trailhead for Antero and did not see any trench or ski tracks. Our group of four broke trail (on snowshoes) up Poplar Gulch about 2.5 miles before we turned around. The snow was about knee deep, definitely a good workout. Even if we had the energy to reach the ridge, it looked loaded. This is a great snowshoe trail with moderate elevation gain.
