The Sawtooth Traverse is very cool. Talus, boulders and a little escape from the crowds on Evans.

Scary scene on this summit after Sawtooth. We were made out to be superhuman for dong the class three traverse... I saw plenty of cell phones, and even a couple iPads... glad the city folk are getting their exercise... probably a hundred people up there

My 4th time up Bierstadt. There were easily 100 people on the mountain with me that day and, as usual, many of whom didn't look like they belonged there.

Nice cool day with a bit of a breeze. I am still amazed to see people going up at when we were almost back down. Went with some friends making for a most enjoyable outing.

bblack99So "easy" a flatlander can do it!  Sucess!

Landed in Denver late Friday night, warmed up on an ~11er, then Cupid (13er), then this bear. The first mile and a half of the West Slopes route from Guanella is total cake, but that really lulls you into a false sense of security. Steep and rocky from about 12,400' to 13,700' then it's all gravy!

9/20/03 - Std route from Guanella Pass in my cottoneering days, my 3rd 14er. Loved it so much I did it again 2 weeks later!

10/4/03 - Std route from Guanella Pass.

2/19/11 - Long approach to Guanella Pass from the Grant side, parked 0.9 miles past where they stop plowing (7.7 miles from 285). Exhausting trap door snow up through the willows capped off by wind and blowing snow up high.

12/15/13 - Pre-winter prep hike that proved Bierstadt doesn't have to be forgettable. Backpacked up Scott Gomer Gulch and camped overnight, then climbed the East Ridge & down the South Ridge before packing out the next day. Fun scrambling with snow but crux ledges on East Ridge would likely be very scary (loaded) later in the season.

vetmikeSketchy weather on Bierstadt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2008


The plan was to go backpacking with some friends, climbing a 14er was just a possibility in the beginning. But once we started up this beautiful mountain, I was set on the summit. Ended up summiting in some sketchy weather, but got down fine. Trip report here: http://intheexpanse.com/mountaineering/mt-bierstadt-2008

jeffrawnJust a little bit of snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2010


Great day with 5 other members of the CAA. 1:30 p.m. start at Guanella Pass made us the last to summit that day, although we met almost 30 who were on their way down. Remnants of snow made the trail mildly slick from 13,200' to the ridge. Nice break from the still-warm and very flat Dallas area!
