Adam and Pete after the final tower on the East Ridge of Bierstadt
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Adam and Pete with the final two towers on Bierstadt's East Ridge in the background. Our route is shown in red. On the far tower, the route stays pretty much on the ridge with serious exposure to both sides. At the bottom, you traverse west (left) around the base of the next tower and ascend a series of cracks to reach the top. Then the next red line shows the descent off the last tower, generally staying on the ridge.
