ericdA 3hr ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2012


This was the first peak in our long 12hr day that included descending the northwest ridge, over the Sawtooth's 'gendarme' and up thru the gully notch, around mt Spalding to mt Evans. Nice boardwalk in the lower wetlands or shall we say mudlands. Partly cloudy with a little wind but an excellent day hike.

MissHOnce per season?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2012


2nd time bagging Bierstadt, first time was February. Guess I have to go back this summer and fall? All snow and ice avoidable. Great day for hiking, 3 hours up and then headed to Evans via Sawtooth. Clouds stuck around the summit but wasn't too bad with sporadic wind gusts. Saw about 10 others at the summit.

Homestarhiker1st 14er!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2012


This was my first 14er. Conditions on the summit were below freezing with high winds. We got snowed on occasionally throughout the day, but never enough to warrant turning back.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Nice high peak for winter days when other routes are sketch. East ridge is my favorite route on this peak. Plan to continue revisiting this peak.

JPBX924Unsucessful Winter
Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2012
Absolutely stunning in the winter. Entirely alone on the mountain (except the other two in the party). Very cold up higher, with relentless winds and weather moving in from the east. Group opted to head down about 1/2 way up due to worsening conditions and exhaustion. A good day though. Watch for ice on route up from US-285. Most ice I've ever seen on a road.

MissHDon't forget sun/windblock!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2012


Perfect weather - no clouds and mild winds, but that means lots of sunshine and frigid temps for a winter ascent. Saw a few people on the way up, and passed some overnight backpackers on our way down. Used microspokes myself, but saw others using snowshoes the whole way. They probably postholed a lot less in the willows than us, but it wasn't too bad.

DanielWandsneiderfun winter hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2009


I hiked up at night and slept out on a tarp at the base. That night I could hear a few lynx calling out to each other, which was pretty fascinating. The next morning, there was a bit of a storm, but the ridge wasn't too bad. Made it up in a few hours but couldn't see much with the low visibility. Hiking through the willows was a huge pain - I'm glad I had at least some help with flotation.

armstrongclimberFirst 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2011
Me and my brother were in town for a couple days hanging out with my cousins so we decided to bag a 14er while we were here. So we stopped by this one for a glorious day in the mountains while on our way to a family reunion in steamboat. When we summited we say a storm that we thought was a long way off, but quickly blew in causing us to run down in some places while the clouds set in and it began to rain. But we all ended up having a good time.

Date Climbed: Oct 23, 2011


A beautiful hike we squeezed in before winter. A little snow, but not enough to shut it down (or change the sport) Gorgeous color and clarity.

TonkaLate start with iffy weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2011


I flew out of Minneapolis at 7:20 a.m., arrived in Denver, checked into the Super 8 in Goergetown and was on the summit before 2. There was quite a bit of snow (for the date) high and lower there was a lot of mud which made the going slower and slippery. Weather was around but things stayed decent in our area. You could see rain in some places but there was no lightning anywhere. Felt our late start would be ok with the current weather conditions.
