Sarah SimonFrom Winter Parking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 4, 2009

Sarah Simon

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.

This I have climbed more than any other, at least 15 times. It is closest to were I grew up. It is a good ski descent in winter and a good snow climb, fairly low avalanche danger.

Wanted to climb the East ridge and connect to evans via sawtooth from evans road, but surpsisingly the road was closed. Resorted to climbing standard route along with the multitudes of others.

We got up early enough to be in the first "batch" of summitters, but not early enough to avoid the mobs of other hikers on our descent. Still, it's good to see so many people out getting exercise, especially families with kids and teens. Partner: Husband.

Had the summit all to myself at 6:30 a.m. prior to traversing the Sawtooth and summiting Evans. Great climb on a beautiful day.

Hiked with Boy Scout Troop. Beat the storm coming in. I never can figure out the people who start late and keep going up when the clouds are rolling in. I figure they got soaked.

We were after the combo and the sawtooth but Marni and Turbo weren't liking the snow cover and we backed off back up Bierstadt. Still a nice hike and a few little glissades on the way down.

There was a bit of a heat wave, and the sun was intense. 5 hours RT for three lowlanders. The mountain was pretty busy for a mid-week climb.

Beautiful day - first Colorado 14er, no altitude problems, gorgeous weather even though it was so humid we couldn't light a fire the night before. Summit was pretty crowded even though it was a Tuesday. Met some guys who were trying to eat donuts on top of every 14er.

My plans to attempt the sawtooth to Evans were thwarted by a storm over Evans. As I was descending an intense storm arose with a lot of people still on the mountain. It was a long, wet hike back with a steady barrage of lightning.

After summiting, crossed the sawtooth and over to Evans. I ran out of food, got rained on, and was tired.
