Joe_ParvisBierstadt - West Slopes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007


West Slopes main trail on a Sunday - VERY crowded. Clear, fair weather and light wind. My wife's first 14er - nice day out and good acclimation for later in season. Next time up to Guanella we'll probably go to Squaretop --- all day we kept looking wistfully through the crowds at it's calm and quiet.

haytraciShort Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2006


This was by far the easiest 14er I've done, considering you are very close to the summit when you start out. Still, it was a great day out with friends! I would say it's a good starter peak, but I wouldn't want to lead anyone to believe all 14ers are this easy.

mountainloverCOMy First 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


My very first 14er, and what a great experience! Skies were blue, the sun was out, and the trail from Guanella Pass was jampacked full of dayhikers from Denver. We experienced a very crowded summit, and rain on the way down. Regardless, the experience was enjoyable enough to prompt an addiction to climbing. Thank you Bierstadt!

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2006


The West Slope was a good choice to keep an eye on the weather!
I thoroughly enjoyed taking the Sawthooth Ridge to bag Mt. Evans too.

weeds19Nice winter climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2000


This was my wife's first 14er and we decided to do it on a blustery day in November. Despite some cold feet due to too many socks we made it to the summit and enjoyed a fine view of a snow covered landscape. We even saw the "SKI" runs!

mtelbertmanwell I warned him


I took a Texan with me, he insisted on doing a 14'er despite his lack of experience (and my strong recommendations against it) so I decided on Bierstadt. Got to about 13,700 feet before he got nasty altitude sickness,so we had to turn back. It was, needless to say, very humbling experience for him. It was my second time on Bierstadt first time made it to top.

Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2006


Guanella Pass road was completely plowed...except for a 10 foot wall of snow just after the parking lot when driving up the Georgetown side. WTF? They just plowed a wall of snow up to block the road. Conditions were fine, but this added 2 miles on the front and back end of the trip. As for the hiking, snowshoes were mandatory. Hiking through the willows in the flat marsh the snow was 3+ feet deep and we broke trail. Snow mostly wind-packed above tree-line and ditched snowshoes. Made the chilly summit and climbed back down. Back to the car just before dark.
