I climbed up there along time ago. I don't remember what trail i started on, but i remember that the hike was pretty short, and my ears freaking hurt!

bjd5578From Guanella Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2005


Tried this the year before by going over Mt. Bierstadt and the Sawtooth, but the weather didn't cooperate. Instead, shortcutted Mt. Bierstadt and went up the steep gully from Guanella Pass (and the willows...ugh) to summit Mt. Evans.

Would've been more of a thrill, except for all the people at the top that felt like they'd accomplished something by hiking from the parking lot 50 feet below!

No, I didn't drive up! But, we (my son and I) hiked the scree field from Summit Lake (Northeast Face I). Great view during the drive, hike and summit, despite threatening weather (it started raining at end of descent). Then we were headed back home to Oklahoma!

Started at 13,300 on the Evans road, up Bierstadt's east ridge, over the Sawtooth, Spaulding, and Evans. This is a fantastic route!

PapaBanucciClimbed with 9 Year Old Daughter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2006


My daughter took an hour nap at the summit. Stayed at summit two hours. Lots and lots of loud people at the top who drove up. In fact the low point at the high point was listening to someone's car alarm going off. Not too serene... Fourth 14er for me, 2nd for her and her favorite stuffed animal, Polo bear.

I met a bunch of goats and summited in a t-shirt with wintery views all around. What more could I ask for, eh?

Gahugafuga3rd time was the charm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2005


Took me three attempts to finally get up Evans. Climbed from Guanella Pass - west ridge via Bierstadt/Sawtooth. Got onto the ridge and started dealing with strong, frigid winds. Not fun but a summit nonetheless. Descended in snow showers at 10AM.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2006


From Summit Lake to Evans to Spalding and back to the lake. Great hike, most of it well above 13000 feet. Nice day too, and it wasn't too crowded.

tombaldwinSawtooth  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2006


The sawtooth is an amazing traverse, but the elevation kicked my butt during the last mile or so to Evans. We ended up walking down the road and getting a ride to Idaho springs from a friendly couple who had hiked the cirque that day (thanks!). Pictures from the traverse are at http://www.flitterbick.net/photo/tripsandevents/sawtooth/ .

There was a circus at the top, and I think that we were the only climbers...
