ouray19Mt. Evans  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006


Purposefully did this mountain on a Monday. Only ran into 2 other people on the trail, of course the summit was another story since you can drive there. Kind of weird seeing a parking lot and people in street clothes. I actually felt kind of "out-of-place" and grubby for the first time on a 14'er!!

Just signing the log. Growing up in Evergreen, this was my backyard playground. I've climbed this one many times, using nearly all the routes, from every direction, in every season, and all conditions. If you don't want to do the overcrowded summer westerly/"Tooth" routes, a long fun route to try is from "Camp Rock", west of upper Bear Creek in Evergreen, to Bear Track Lakes and then a line up to the upper south faces of Evans. The couloir out of Chicago Creek Basin is fun 4th class stuff too. Just before the road opens, or just after it closes, the road up from Echo Lake is an awesome mountain bike trip. In winter, the road up is an outstanding cross country ski route. Good times!!!

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2007


Climbed via the Sawtooth and West Ridge. Staying on top of the ridge is much more fun than the trail on the south side of the ridge. The willows on the descent lived up to their reputation.

I really don't like willows but a great climb overall. Saw about a dozen mountain goats.

I was passing through, and in the company of a non-hiker, so drove up. Nice place, though crowded. But I saw a lot of mountain goats close up.

I like it on top

Started from Guanella pass, made a couple of wrong turns, but finally found the summit. Lots of tourists. My cousins first 14'er.

Drove it on a rest day between Elbert and Massive. Spectacular scenery! Hiked around Summit Lake and took some pictures. Definitely worth coming back to do the right way.

TLPnot signing, but was there  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Was I successful? I guess so. I paid the $10 to drive up to the top. It was my first time in Colorado, and I wanted to see how I would feel on the top of a 14er. The next day I CLIMBED Mt. Elbert! Woo-Hoo. It was a total tourist thing to do, but it was fun. You guys in Colorado got it made. Lucky dogs.

Got up early to beat the crowds. We were third on summit, but by the time we were ready to head back, the parade had begun.

Climb in winter to avoid the crowds. Be sure to hit "West Evans", too.

Amazing Climb! The Sawtooth was fun and much easier than I expected it to be. The crowd of motorists at the summit was disappointing. Hiked the west ridge route down and had to bushwack through the willows in order to get back to Guanella Pass.

Climbed the Crystal Couloir on Father's Day. The weather and conditions were perfect. My wife and daughter drove to the top and met me at the summit for a Father's Day celebration.

Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2007


Climbed the Crystal couloir in about 2 hours from Summit Lake. It was cold (well below freezing) and windy today. Nice fun moderate snow climb at altitude. We had very hard snow for the approach to the couloir and good step kicking snow for the climb.

No one up there on a cold October day. Did Bierstadt and Evans via the Sawtooth Ridge (loved the Sawtooth). I would enjoy going back to try some of the snow routes on Evans!
