belexesWestern Slope Guanella Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2010

belexes

Meetup.com hike. This was my third time up Bierstadt. The lower parking lot was full when we arrived. The trail was muddy, especially in the willows. There's still a few patches of snow up there. The weather was a little unsettled: it was very windy and chilly, with some clouds moving through. Our group got pretty spread out, but I think everyone reached the summit.

I'm convinced I did this in 2001, but my pictures are dated 2000. I didn't know what I was getting into on my first 14er and got jelly-legs on the way down. I think the 2nd trip up, I cut 1 hour off the 1st trip's time.

AlpinistWinter ascent via Guanella Pass   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2010

Alpinist

Flew into Denver at 8pm with 4 guys from the CMC. Drove up I-70 to Guanella Pass Road with the intention of camping at Burning Bear campground only to discover that Guanella Pass is CLOSED. Damn. We had to drive all the way around to get to the south side of the pass. Got to sleep at 2:30am and woke at 7:30am. Made the summit but was dogging the whole way. 0-14K in less than 24 hours on 5 hours sleep. What a long day!

Hiked the west slopes and took the North Face gully to the summit.

Dropped 700' to the low point of the sawtooth and had to climb back up.

I'm counting it twice. =D

Left Guanella Pass at 9:35 PM, got to the summit at 11:30 PM. The moon was so bright that we kept the headlamps in the packs. Tried to catch some Z's on the summit, but it was kinda chilly, so we continued to Evans via Sawtooth. Back at the TH at 6:35 am. Looong trip, especially with no sleep!

Finally got around to it. Was going to do it in combo with Evans via the Sawtooth but a member of my group didn't like the exposure. Couldn't have asked for a nicer day.

I've summited this 14er several times. I remember that my fingers and hands have been frozen at the summit more than once.

Ken DammenEast Ridge Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2009

Ken Dammen

Road was closed past Summit Lake parking area. Hiked up to saddle below Evans. Dropped down below Abyss Lake and climbed up to he East Ridge. There was snow on the route making the 3rd Class climb seem more difficult. Fun scramble up ridge to Summit. Only saw two people on the summit all day, and nobody on the East Ridge. Weather turned bad on us and we found ourself in a snow storm. We continued on and completed the Sawtooth Ridge and Summited Evans in the snow storm. This was a day with two rugged ridges. Great fun!

To me, this was a very hard climb because I was 8 years old when I did it. From what I remeber, it was a nice day and a crowded trail.
