ktiffany22Route Climbed: Guanella Pass Date Climbed: August 5, 2004  Sucess!


Started at Guanella Pass- 3rd time I've been on the start of this trail, but the 1st time I've had to get off it & bushwack/marshstomp- crazy stuff! We fell for the first false summit attached to the Sawtooth, went clear to the left of it & summited side mountains, then saw the "dum" road leading to the top of Evans & figured out where we were! Yes- lots of extra mileage to get to the summit of Evans, & quite an adventure on the way back down (thought we'd sink in the marshes), but any hike is always a good hike when you're hiking the mountains of Colorado! I love this stuff!!! (and I just hit double digits on climbing 14ers!:-)

Pretty easy climb, nothing to it just walking up basically. Fun time with a good view.

I did not think it would be that hard. Beware of lightning. The clouds find you fast.

I was sick from the altitude right off the bat, or maybe too much beer, I did drink so much I passed out in the front of my truck. It was cold & I didn’t take enough clothes. I couldn’t eat because I was nauseous. I took a picture of Matt holding a Redwings flag on the summit of Bierstadt. The traverse to Evans was fun, it took us two hours. When getting on the Evans ridgeline stay to the right and low. Getting back was hell. I could barely move going through the reeds, it sucked. It took ten hours. I swore that would be the last time I do a peak hungover.

Old Ickabod

Solo trip. My first Class 3 route. I couloir was steep and real loose. I didn't know any better, but had a blast. Their was still snow at the top of the couloir and I got a little off route and onto some steep rock. No worries. I followed the West Ridge, summited, then descended the Northeast Face.

Accompanied by Hays and Spolek. My second ascent was via Bierstadt and the sawtooth. Awesome trip!

Very cool hike. Came across one hiker the whole day! Big change compared to Grays / Torreys and Mt. Bierstadt. Definately fun hiking on the ridge the whole way across. Weather was perfect, wind was perfect, just a great day to be outside, and be alive!

Much fun, I'd guess much of the traverse is easier in winter with the snow cover.

bigwillyRoute Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: September 18, 2004  Sucess!


The willows are the most memorable thing about this climb. They are a major pain. Be sure the weather is alright since the ridge is long and hard to retreat from. Summitted later in the day so that we were able to avoid the majority of the gawking tourists. They wouldn't understand why we hike anyways.

Finding one's way thru the willows is what you really remember from this climb. That and the hoarde of tourists near the top that gawk at you carrying a pack (I know they're thinking: "Why didn't you just drive up and hike from the parking area?"). If I had to answer that question, they wouldn't understand the answer anyway. Alas....just make sure the weather holds out ok if you try this and have to return to the western summit...I wouldn't want to be there in a storm.

One of the first 14'er that I climbed. I can trace my addiction to the mountains back to the mountains in Colorado.

Climbed this as part of a dayhike that included Mount Bierstadt. After summiting Bierstadt I dropped down chutes into the Abyss Lake basin, and then groveled up the loose slope to the summit of Evans. Bit of a crowd scene on top with all the cars and sightseers, but the Colorado Rockies are beautiful no matter what the conditions are...

NatashaRoute Climbed: Sawtooth from Bierstadt (Guanella Pass) Date Climbed: June 8, 2004  Sucess!


What a way to start the summer! The Sawtooth was awesome! Encountered a few snowfields (next time I will take my ice axe). Glad we took the extra effort to hike over the ridges (on the way back) to meet back up with the Bierstadt trail, in lieu of trekking through the willows at the bottom.

mr_gRoute Climbed: Northeast Face Date Climbed: June 5, 1999  Sucess!


Started from Summit Lake, and hiked alone the ridge line south of the bowl. Alot of snow still on the peak - a few people were hiking with skis. Very cold at the summit.
