bblack99So "easy" a flatlander can do it!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011


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.

3/6/15 - Std route from north side Guanella Pass closure. Dwight's final winter 14er!!

6/28/15 - Std route. Started hiking 8:15pm, slept on summit, back to trailhead just after 6am the next morning.

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!

I have summited this peak so far 4 times but did it first on the above date. Great early season conditioner with killer views and a great trail!

JonWOnly for the Sawtooth  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2010


We only climbed this to get the Sawtooth Ridge. The Sawtooth was a blast. The slog up Bierstandt, not so much.

Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2010


a beautiful hike via guanella pass. Largest, most cluelessly obnoxious crowd I have ever encountered on a colorado 14er, despite the road from the front range cities being closed due to rockslide. If you can tune out the idiots, though, this is the easiest 14er I have hiked yet. The sawtooth ridge looks inviting for when I come back for Evans.

Fun hike from the winter closure gate up the west slopes. Starting at the winter closure gate gave me the 3,000' elevation gain. Total mileage from there was 11.

strudolyubovEast Ridge Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2010


Climbed Bierstadt via East Ridge. Started from Mt. Evans parking area, used the first steep gully to get down to the valley and ascended directly to the base of Pt. 13,641. Climbed directly to the top of Pt. 13,641 on a nice solid rock then stayed on the ridge crest. After summiting Bierstadt did Sawtooth traverse to Mt. Evans. Great solid rock, nice weather, incredible views!

mirhashBeautiful March Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2010


We had to hike a couple miles to the pass after being stopped by a giant snow berm. Went up with Adam and my new Norwegian friend Sigmund. Snowshoed most of the way (Sigmund skinned all the way up!). Summited in a flannel shirt!!
