Hiked with a group via Echo Lake on a plesant late August day, most of them had a few too many beers the night before to get up early, but a few of us enjoyed the beautiful hike and descended via one of the class three variations for some added fun.

I parked at Summit lake and walked around the lake to the other side. I found a couloir almost half way between Evans and Spalding, closer to Evans and climbed up that and gained the ridge probably 300-400 meters away from Evans. It was my first experience in a couloir (other than the trough-which I was quite used to). very windy on top.

Came straight down the east slope and picked up the road. Not too many people

This was my 4th 14er and the most fun one yet. Ran into goats close to Spaulding summit. Fun talus hike on West side of Evans as you climb SE to summit.

The Sawtooth is way more fun than driving :)

A very long haul with deep powder snow in the gullies. Verglass made the upper ridge very very painful. This was a brusing snow climb.

Combo day, did this in conjunction with Mount Bierstadt, just because it was convenient to do both of them at the same time. Great view but people with cars make this a little too accessible for my taste. I hate crowds on the summit.

This was a rest day, so we picked the easy way up... left the truck at echo and got just enough elevation to call it official.

I've done this numerous times. First time to the summit was riding from Evergreen (Bergan Park) to the parking lot, then hiking with sandals the rest of the way. Since then I've never done the last hike to the top again, but had ridden the road for 4 years running. I hit 50mph every time heading down.

Well, we started at Guanella Pass and went toooo far left. Ended up summiting Spaulding, then heading to Evans. Made for a nice looong hike! But we got to bag 2 peaks! And it was a beautiful day. Bierstadt even had a dusting of snow.

Fun Fourteener, however the summit is CRAWLING with unappreciative tourists who litter and bother the wildlife....Stay on Bierstadt, it's most likely better.

Good winter climb. Pretty straight forward. More fun to try and stay right on top of the ridge instead of the side like most people do.

This was my second time over the sawtooth from Bierstadt. The first time, weather ran me off before I got to Evans.

Bob SihlerRoute Climbed: Upper Snave  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2005

Bob Sihler

I hiked to the summit from the parking area with my wife, Katie, and son, Jack. This was Jack's first fourteener; he did not hoof it up here, but he, at 11 months, did a better job climbing rocks up here than most adults do. I will never take a long approach to Evans because it seems pointless and ungratifying to do so on a mountain that has a road up it, but I did want to be able to say I'd done something legitimate on Evans. So, from the summit I descended some Class 3 rocky terrain to the ledge accessing the Snave and the north face couloirs, and then I turned right to climb a prominent crack and ledges which turned out to be the upper portions of the Snave route. The absence of snow made for some Class 5 climbing, especially through the crack and up an overhang (it seems these portions were just off the actual route), and it was at times harder than 5.0-5.2 routes I'd done before. Many people would want protection here, but I free-climbed in jeans and had little real difficulty. I also had a lot of fun, and doing the entire route from Summit Lake, minus the talus slopes, would be even better.

Hiked Bierstadt first and got a little sick on the way up, once that went away the day was great. I brought my dog along and he did great, but my brothers dog ripped up her paws. Longer hike then expected, but fun.

Traversing the Sawtooth was fun and non-technical. Caught in a horrible lightning and snow storm on the way down from Evans--being stupid, we should've been off the summit ridge by then.

Did Bierstadt before sunrise, then traversed the really intense Sawtooth before making our way up the Mt. Evans ridge to the summit. Many tourists (probably from Texas) were up there wondering why we were wearing so much gear.
