Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007

We took this route to climb the Sawtooth and Evans. We glassed the route from the summit of Bierstadt and it was too snowy/icy for our taste, so we made a short day of it and retreated to Georgetown for lunch and a beer.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Surprised by the amount of snow. But certainly enjoyed strapping the snowshoes on for the descent.

Was focused more on the sawtooth traverse than either of the peaks, but still enjoyed the views. As for the travers, Awesome! Loved the scrambling and my friend and I created our own way at times.

Went over to Sawtooth, descended back to Guanella Pass. This was my 4th fourteener at the time. Brief snowstorm on the descent, then mucked around in the willows until after dark. Friend got altitude sickness, which necessitated numerous stops while driving down Guanella Pass Road.

Great day to hike. The trail was dry and clear until about 12500, then snow the rest the way up. No wind whatsoever. Wasn't hot enough to melt any snow, making a muddy mess. Wasn't too cool either.
