|Date:||Sunday, July 31, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||13588 ft / 4141 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI began on the black cloud trail to solo climb mt elbert, south elbert, cosgriff and bull hill. I lost the black cloud trail so I decided to just climb directly up the south face of cosgriff. This was pretty difficult as there was loose scree that I had to climb up. Also it didnt help that less than 24 hours befor I was flying in from sea level in Florida. I got to the top of cosgriff without any signs of altitude sickness and was extremely thrilled. The summit of cosgriff was pretty and was exciting for me. Then I continued on to south elbert. TR continues on south elbert ascent.
