RyanSRoute Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: July 14, 2005  Sucess!


Climbed Spalding from Summit Lake as part of the Mount Evans Loop route after work last Thursday. I left work at my usual time, and started the hike at 7:00. I made it back to my car at 10:00, but I didn't take the direct ridge descent back to the lake, instead opting to follow the Evans Road's path back to the lake.

I planned on summitting Spalding then going on to Gray Wolf, but when I arrived at Summit Lake the weather was terrible.

I hiked the ridge in mostly white-out conditions, with high winds and lots of snow and ice. When I got to the summit, I could not see Gray Wolf so I decided to summit that one another day.

There were three others following me, but I never ran into them and I did not see them on the way down, although their car was still at the trailhead.

After climbing Gray Wolf, we traversed to Spalding and then returned to Guanella Pass. I can't believe I didn't take a picture of Mount Evans north face from the summit! It's such a magnificent view, argh!

What a great little climb/hike. Talked with a few climbers who had just come up the snowfield on the west end of Summit Lake. The views were great. Went on to finish up the "Mile in the Sky" and visited Evans' summit.

I was trying to bag Evans and as I came up to the ridge Spalding was just "there" so I did it. Somewhat uneventful except for getting lots of mountain goat shots.

Climbed this one on my way from California to Virginia, wish I had more time to climb in Colorado but family and business was calling. I was happy I got to do this one, the views were awesome not a cloud in the sky. A quick ,easy and scenic peak.

TexasClimberRoute Climbed: Summit Ridge Route, Grade I, Class 2 Date Climbed: July 12, 2003  Sucess!


I met up with my girlfriend in Denver for a little climbing. We decided to bag Evans as well as Mount Spalding via the Summit Ridge Route (Grade I, Class 2) from Summit Lake on the Mt. Evans Road. Obviously, we did not obey the 14’er 3000’ foot rule on this climb, but taking the ridge line and bagging two peaks compensated in our efforts for lack of gain on the climb. I highly recommend this route as it affords gorgeous views and solitude sticking with class 2 climbing. The ridge from Summit Lake looks Class 3 but it is in fact Class 2 with a surprisingly well marked path. We left our vehicle at 10:00 AM and started up Spalding’s flanks. Spalding’s summit came quickly at around ~11:15 AM or so. We rounded the ridge line on to Mt Evans and made the summit around 1:30 PM. Our descent was down the scree slopes of Evans (normal route) and took another hour and half down to put us back to the car at around 3:00 PM. We summited both Spalding and Evans on Saturday, July 12, 2003.

Picked this up while descending Evans West Ridge on the way back to Guanella Pass. I found three 70+ year old men on top eating lunch. They were entertaining and reminded me that I don't have any excuses for getting out and climbing.

We hiked this from Summit Lake one morning and then went over to Evans. A really nice hike with some good views.

My fiancé and I hiked from Summit Lake over Spalding to Evans. The clods obscured any view we might have had. I'm coming back in August to climb some other 14ers, and I'll likely use this route as a warm-up, acclimatization hike. Definitely do this mountain!!
