breagenwinter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 20, 2008


Winter ascent from below Guanella Pass, wasn't plowed so that added another 3-4 km to the thing. Fun day, did it in 8 hours total coming from Iowa the day before (yay not acclimating). The summit had insane winds on it so we only spent about 1 minute on top, would love to do the sawtooth someday.

I liked the traverse to Evan's a lot, it was empty and cold, filled snow and it provided awesome views!

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1976


Thrashed through the willows on my first climb of this peak. So much easier now with the boardwalks - easier on the tundra too.

MountainHikerCOFirst of many  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 1986


This was my first of many climbs of Bierstadt. Some of the climbs have been combined with a traverse of The Sawtooth over to Mt Evans. I've had nice days on Bierstadt, even in the winter, and I've experienced brutal weather. I've been chased off Bierstadt by lightning and one one occasion turned back close to the summit because of cold wind. On that occasion I got frostbite on the bridge of my nose - the only exposed flesh.

MattGreeneQuick dash  Sucess!
Bierstadt was a quick winter summit from Guanella pass. The snow was wind-swept, which made it easy for travel.

spannring29Tour d'Abyss  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2007


We planned on the Tour d'Abyss, but weather moved in and the Sawtooth was not looking very friendly in bad weather, so we had to settle for Bierstadt. A very fun route that I need to go back and finish.

noahs213Guanella Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007


Very overcast with tons of snow clouds. Got to the summit with just a second of a view and it was cold. Got a third of the way down and headed into 50mph winds with snow/hail. Nice weather. It was great. I wish the weather would always be like that.

argothorBeirstadt and Evans  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 1998


Started at Guanella Pass, waded though the famous Scott Gomer willows before the boardwalk was put in, summited Bierstadt and then did the Sawtooth to get to Evans. Headed back to the trailhead without going back over the Sawtooth. Got to the car just as the skies let loose with buckets of rain.

Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2007

Left Evans, went across the sawtooth and up the rocks on the South side. I had a fun time going up the rocks and it made it much more enjoyable than going up a well worn route. Came back the same way: down the rocks, across the sawtooth, and up spalding to get back down to the parking lot.
No clouds all day and couldn't have been more fun.

hans.schenkWest Slopes  Sucess!


My wife and I climbed this the summer of 1999. It was my second 14er and her first. They were just starting to put in the walkways among the willow swamp. Needless to say, we got our feet wet because the planks weren't up yet.

It was a nice day, still a lot of snow on the route so I used crampons to hurry my way up so I could get moving on the traverse.

Training hike in beautiful environment. Went in afternoon and saw only 2 others coming down through willows. Otherwise quiet and calm alone. Quickly up and down. Tried to run all the way up, but still not ready for that.
