What can I say? We did the Sawtooth traverse but had to bail 200 feet below Evans Summit due to bad weather..

Ken DammenEast Ridge Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2009

Ken Dammen

Road was closed past Summit Lake parking area. Hiked up to saddle below Evans. Dropped down below Abyss Lake and climbed up to he East Ridge. There was snow on the route making the 3rd Class climb seem more difficult. Fun scramble up ridge to Summit. Only saw two people on the summit all day, and nobody on the East Ridge. Weather turned bad on us and we found ourself in a snow storm. We continued on and completed the Sawtooth Ridge and Summited Evans in the snow storm. This was a day with two rugged ridges. Great fun!

To me, this was a very hard climb because I was 8 years old when I did it. From what I remeber, it was a nice day and a crowded trail.

Left Guanella Pass at 9:35 PM, got to the summit at 11:30 PM. The moon was so bright that we kept the headlamps in the packs. Tried to catch some Z's on the summit, but it was kinda chilly, so we continued to Evans via Sawtooth. Back at the TH at 6:35 am. Looong trip, especially with no sleep!

It was my first 14er, as it is for so many others. There were plenty of people but not actually as crowded as I worried it could be. The Western Slope is a steep, but very well-maintained trail, and it's more like 3.67 miles each way, not 3.0 miles as the main page says.

My first 14er. Started really early, so there were just a few people on the summit while I was there, though big crowds were coming up while I descended.

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.
