JPBX924Unsucessful Winter
Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2012
Absolutely stunning in the winter. Entirely alone on the mountain (except the other two in the party). Very cold up higher, with relentless winds and weather moving in from the east. Group opted to head down about 1/2 way up due to worsening conditions and exhaustion. A good day though. Watch for ice on route up from US-285. Most ice I've ever seen on a road.

Perfect weather - no clouds and mild winds, but that means lots of sunshine and frigid temps for a winter ascent. Saw a few people on the way up, and passed some overnight backpackers on our way down. Used microspokes myself, but saw others using snowshoes the whole way. They probably postholed a lot less in the willows than us, but it wasn't too bad.

I hiked up at night and slept out on a tarp at the base. That night I could hear a few lynx calling out to each other, which was pretty fascinating. The next morning, there was a bit of a storm, but the ridge wasn't too bad. Made it up in a few hours but couldn't see much with the low visibility. Hiking through the willows was a huge pain - I'm glad I had at least some help with flotation.

armstrongclimberFirst 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2011
Me and my brother were in town for a couple days hanging out with my cousins so we decided to bag a 14er while we were here. So we stopped by this one for a glorious day in the mountains while on our way to a family reunion in steamboat. When we summited we say a storm that we thought was a long way off, but quickly blew in causing us to run down in some places while the clouds set in and it began to rain. But we all ended up having a good time.

A beautiful hike we squeezed in before winter. A little snow, but not enough to shut it down (or change the sport) Gorgeous color and clarity.

I flew out of Minneapolis at 7:20 a.m., arrived in Denver, checked into the Super 8 in Goergetown and was on the summit before 2. There was quite a bit of snow (for the date) high and lower there was a lot of mud which made the going slower and slippery. Weather was around but things stayed decent in our area. You could see rain in some places but there was no lightning anywhere. Felt our late start would be ok with the current weather conditions.

The Sawtooth Traverse is very cool. Talus, boulders and a little escape from the crowds on Evans.

Scary scene on this summit after Sawtooth. We were made out to be superhuman for dong the class three traverse... I saw plenty of cell phones, and even a couple iPads... glad the city folk are getting their exercise... probably a hundred people up there

My 4th time up Bierstadt. There were easily 100 people on the mountain with me that day and, as usual, many of whom didn't look like they belonged there.
