dirthGood first 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008


Quick climb. Not from Colorado so I was pleased when I didn't have any problems with the altitude. Passed 10 other groups going up. It looked like other people were struggling with the altitude a little bit more.

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2006


My first 14er! From Guanella Pass to the Bierstadt summit, then over Sawtooth ridge to Mount Evans and then dropped down into the willows to return to the car. A very long day.

tomlaurenSouth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2005


Hiked the South Ridge from Scott Gomer Creek Trailhead. To the best of my knowledge, nobody else summited via that route that day (and it was a Saturday). Got great shots of a mountain goat near the top.

habaceebaFirst 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2006


Hindsight is 20/20, and I was in idiot. I had moved to CO from TX a few weeks earlier and I was overly excited about the mountains. I set out this day with little more than a light jacket and water. I was wearing a pair of 3-4 year old New Balance running shoes with zero traction. When I reached the summit, it was whiteout and the snow began to blanket the ground as I descended. I made it in one piece.

Took my girlfriend at the time up for her first 14er. Paid dearly for it.

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.

Kenneth.aloneNice traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 2004
I liked the traverse to Evan's a lot, it was empty and cold, filled snow and it provided awesome views!

peakrat76Standard "Willows" Route  Sucess!
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.
