Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


It was a cold, rain day. My friend and I sat on the summit for an hour (I don’t recommend this) as we waited for the rest of our party. On the way down we got stuck in a snow storm that made the rock very slick. Several people slipped on the way down. Sawtooth looks fun!

First 14er in Colorado. Drove my GF to work in Denver, then headed up into the hills, climbed Bierstadt over the West Slope and was back in time to pick her up after work.
Not the way we climb such high mountains where I'm from...

This was my 3rd time summitting this peak - a fun one to be sure, although it was a very cold and windy day.

BeginnerClimberFam's First 14er attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006


AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL DAY!!! Took the whole fam to Bierstadt, picking what I thought was the easiest 14er over the easiest path (Guenella Pass). The wife and 13yo and 6yo daughters all gave it the college try, but they turned around at 12,600ft while the 10yo son and I trudged ahead. Made the summit quickly, then hiked down quickly the find the family sleeping in the truck.

Guess I thought they could make it (this is my 9th 14er) but we'll try again next spring. All in all, no complaints about the cool weather and cloudless sky. Wish all hikes were like that! See my Mt Sherman writeup from the week prior to see how things change in a week.

Parked at noon, on top by 145pm, back at the car by 3pm. Lots of people. Weather looked threatening, but held.

Finally got up this one...Top of Bier from Guanella pass in just over 2 hours...descent to Sawtooth about 1 hour...Sawtooth traverse - PRICELESS! That thing is FUN! A good beginner class 3 with a little (but not too much) exposure for newbies...Lets not talk about the willows on the way out...:)

Little harder hike than I expected, but a good time. TONS of people, might have been over 50 on the peak.

I was looking for the trail to do Mt Evans from the Guanella Pass trailhead, but I must have walked right past it. No matter, ended doing Bierstadt instead. My dog's first fourteener!

Nice trail and an enjoyable hike. Ran into the ubiquitous backcountry know-it-all who tried to advise us on every aspect of our hike, but you can't let those folks ruin your day. Of the four I've done so far (Grays, Torreys, Bierstadt, Quandary), this might have been the best overall.

First one of the summer. Took Diane along for her first one ever. Great climb/hike, started at 6 am and 36 degrees, finished a couple hours and much warmer later. Crowds and crowds headed up while we were coming back down.
