Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Start early! My wife and I got descent parking at 6 AM and were at the top in 3 hours taking it easy. It took just as long to get down to the upward bound "traffic." Wow! Great views. Awesome morning to be on the top of Colorado!

Wrecked hard on my bike yesterday and originally wanted to snave it up on Evan's but my left arm is useless so I just went for the easy hike up bierstadt! I had fun.

summit of the year for me. Rainy at the TH but cleared up. Sean and I were the first to reach the summit before the conga line to the top ensued

Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2009


Beautiful day between two snow storms. First 14er. Skied up until 13,000ft, then climbed the rest, used crampons to get back down to where we left the skis. Except me and my buddy, not a single living soul in sight. Great time!

Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2009


On a Sunday in late winter I was surprised to find so few people. It was a beautiful, cold and peaceful hike. It was just me and my thoughts all day.

farrisglBusy peak; completed on a side trip from California  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2002


I got a bit of a late start after my drive up from Denver at about 9 am. Fortunately the weather was good and made the summit in good time. Busy place with perhaps 200 climbers and maybe more. Excellent view and glad i took the time to climb this peak.

While blessedly sunny and clear, it was incredibly cold this day. Fortunately, the trail was pretty well packed but we still snowshoed until just below the saddle. The snow leaving the saddle was total hardpack - you could kick steps about 1-2 inches deep, and that's all the purchase you would get. It was beyond cold this day. Temps were in the single digits and windchill was WELL below zero. Not much celebrating on the summit: Take a few more bites of food and a sip of water and descend. I didn't even bother signing the summit register - just walked right past it. I just wanted out of that bitter cold wind.

This mountain is a sweet little teddy bear of a hike in the summer, but a formidable foe in winter conditions from the lower parking area. Hiking partners: Ricardo's CMC outing.
