rkymtnFrom Evans  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2007


Climbed with Haliku to complete the Bierstadt/Evans cirque. A good end to a reasonably long day.

HalikuThree for Three  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2007


Climbed with rkymtn as part of our goal to do Bierstadt, Sawtooth ridge and Mt. Evans. Since Spalding was along the way back...
Numerous cars and many people at the Guanella Pass TH when I arrived. Thankfully they were all going up Mt. Bierstadt. Once I turned left after crossing the creek I had the route to myself. The numerous paths through the willows and peat bogs all headed in the same general direction. The west slope is a workout with a lot of minor rock outcrops. I had a close encounter (>20 ft) with a mountain goat along the way to the top. Summit register was missing.

rpaceLong day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2007


Started from West Chicago Creek trailhead, aiming for Mt Evans and Gray Wolf Mountain. Was delayed due to "map" issues, so settled for Mt Spalding and Gray Wolf Mountain instead. It was still a 16.2 mile trek, although through beautiful country.

Tagged en-route to Evans. This was a nicer-looking mountain with better views than Evans, itself, I believe.

The climber's trail through the willows off the main Bierstadt trail seems to be slowly improving, but it's still impossible to keep your feet dry.

I climbed this twice before driving up Evans. I wish I could comment on the view I had, but it was raining, then sleeting, then snowing. I love Colorado weather! :) Even in the rain, it was a fun short hike. Next time, I hope to go on to Gray Wolf.

Spalding is best when combined with some other peaks, Gray Wolf, Warren, and Rogers was what we did

altitude14erUnofficial Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2004


Too bad Spalding's saddle doesn't rise 300 ft. or more from Evans...than it'd be an official summit. It was still worth visiting!

A nice stop on the way back to Guanella Pass - worth the brief detour.
