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

Hit Spalding on way to Evans. Saw mountain goats and mule deer...made it worth it considering Spalding wasn't in the original plan :)

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.

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.
