I drove up and did the little hike to the top with my wife and daughters. My daughters were excited to be up so high.

cdevenney84Guanella Pass - wet feet  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2013


There's really no good way to go about hiking this from Guanella Pass. No matter how careful I was I still got my feet wet. Also climbed up the wrong side of the gully and had to carefully downclimb and traverse to the left side. I was scared of a slide. If I had to do it over I would have just done the Sawtooth traverse.

Awesome trip, Bierstadt, Sawtooth, Evans, long way from Sawtooth to Evans and the Willows of Guanella pass at the end sucked the rest of my energy.

pacojgarzaSawtooth tour  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2012


I reached Evans`s summit after bagging Bierstadt from Guanella Pass then scrambling the connecting sawtooth ridge. Descended via the steep gully then through the willow infested marshy terrain. This was a fun day that had started with a moose sighting near the Pass. This was peak #12 on day 9 of my 13 day trip.

By way of Bierstadt and Sawtooth (fun but a workout). Descending the Gully to Scott Gomer Basin was a pretty good workout also! Overall a great day.
Hiked it with 19 other men from Christ Church Plano, most of whom summitted Bierstadt and 9 of whom bagged Evans. (2 had to hitch a ride down due to injury and lateness in the day.) Grays/Torreys two days later.

ColoradoBergfexAscent from Guanella Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2012


Began our climb at 7:30am on the crowded Bierstadt trail, cutting off at the first left pass the creek. After getting muddy in marshland, we came to a lovely secluded cliff waterfall and then hiked up the gully to the left of Sawtooth. At the top we climbed straight up over rugged boulders, seeing mountain goats. After eating lunch on a false summit at 11am, we cut down to a trail on the south side and met a bunch of tourists on the summit at noon, who asked us "real climbers" to pose for a picture on the rocks for them. Beautiful route with the false summit and top of Sawtooth exceeding the actual summit.

The short walk to the top from the parking lot was the best choice for our non-hiker in-laws from Texas.

Good panoramic views from this peak, kinda surreal to be hiking all day on the Sawtooth ridge and come up, around mt Spalding, to a visitor's parking lot and summit walk up. We were still 3.5hrs from our car at Guenella pass trailhead and it's tempting to descend any number of trails or road here. (It would be like 50 miles away!) Had a way-late summit at 4pm but no t-storms and a nice long June evening with a venus transit in the sky! (fyi: 3% less brightness)

MissHEvans, via Sawtooth  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2012


Ascended via Sawtooth and descended via West Gully to Guanella Pass with EricD. Windy most of the time, but that's to be expected. Rain clouds built up and then passed us. The sun and wildlife came out for our descent, and we made it back to trailhead just before sunset, about 3.5 hours descent with lots of MUD in the willows. Trail was easy to follow with limited route-finding as long as you know the general direction to go in. Fantastic views.
