Ascent Trip Report

Two friends and I decided on a moments notice to climb a 14er at night and since we live in Leadville we did Elbert because it was so close by. When we decided to do it it was almost 10 oclock at night so we drove out to the east ridge and began our climb. We summited at about 3:40 am and descended almost imidiatley. On our way down we were being followed by a pack of coyotes.
