Drove up and enjoyed several hours hiking around the summit, photographing goats and marmots, in preparation for the 1997 Pikes Peak Marathon.

Started on Evans road at the Epaulet saddle and descended the gully to the Lake Fork valley. Ascended Bierstadt from just above Abyss Lake. Took the Sawtooth over to Evans and back down the road to the car.

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007


Completed the well marked Mt. Evans Loop. So we hit Mt. Spaulding AND Evans! This was 14er #10 fr me. WOO HOO! The West Ridge of Evans is full of fun climbing! But alas, the summit was SO packed! I have never been on a summit with so many people! Nor have I ever smelled exhaust at 14,000 feet...

AspenRoute Climbed: Sawtooth from Bierstadt
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1999


This is not the 1st time I climbed Mt. Evans but it's the first time I did it via the Sawtooth Ridge. 3 friends came with me; we parked at Bierstadt.

We had offers from tourists to take us back to our parking as a storm approach but we didn't care to. Instead, we went back the same way and got hit by rain and hail. I slipped 40 feet down a path but managed to find an unused trail. My friends knew I was ok when they heard my coded whistle (always carry a whistle with you). We made it back to the car with bit of hypothermia and discovered that I had a flat in the rear passenger tire. Hahaha!! What a SUPER Great Day!

The next weekend we found ourselves exploring the Maroon Bells.

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!!

Date Climbed: May 15, 1989


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2001


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.

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

LonePeakFreakToo bad about the road...
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2007


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.
