Nice day, wind at my back on the ascent, and no wind on the descent. My first winter summit!

After sleeping in the tent, that was setup on the side of the road, I drove the 1/8 mile to the trailhead and parked the car and in the middle of the night proceeded towards the summit. Somehow I was not 1st but 2nd after a bunch of young kids already made themselves comfortable on the summit. Great views, and crisp air that morning....

I was just planning on snowshoeing in the area but was suprised at how little snow there was on the mountain and I had the time so I decided to go for the summit! I saw a few people down low but had the summit all to myself. There was a bit of snow down low, not enough to cover the willows but enought that you would want snow shoes or skiis. About half way up the snow was rather sparse. I saw a couple of tele skiiers who turned around here because of lack of snow.

Labor Day Weekend. Snow the night before. Fairly crowded but not too bad.

This was my second in as many days. I should have rested between summits but it was great. I did the Saw Tooth and bonked on the other side.

I had put off Bierstadt many times, in fear of the infamous willows. Finally did it, in a very dry year, with my daughter, and found that boardwalks had been installed over the soggy places! We went on over the Sawtooth to include Evans, descending by the more northerly route through--of course!--the willows. It was a long day, but very satisfying--and more challenging than the ratings of the peaks alone indicate.

Skipped out of work early (shhh... don't tell) and hiked/ran/gasped to summit. Late in day (road work after Georgetown caused significant delays) but weather was perfect. Wonderful end to a work week.

Easy hike with Hays and Spolek. Made it more interesting by traversing the sawtooth and summiting Mt Evans.

Second time up Bierstadt, this time I made it all the way to Evans before the weather scared me off.

Absolutely beautiful day! Summer won't let go. Uneventful plodding until the Sawtooth, then pick your poison as fun scrambling and scree surfing abound. I really enjoyed the views of the ridge traverse from the XC route back to the pass.

Awesome hike/easy climb from Evans to here and back-- should've had my ice axe, though, and had to negotiate somewhat tricky rock to avoid hard, steep snowfields on Bierstadt's flanks. Spectacular views of surrounding mountains and icebound lakes at almost 13,000'. There is some exposure along the ridge traverse that may make many people uncomfortable, but the rock is good and you just need to watch your feet, of course.
