tk421ucopyWinter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2018
Trial was very well packed down. Snowshoes not necessary, but helpful on the short approach. Ice axe necessary, unless you can manage to stay on the rocks. Crampons may be useful but I didn't bother as the steepest snow I went on was about 30˚ ish. Not a cloud in the sky the entire day. Possibly the best winter weather for a 14er I've seen.

Nice trail. Your able to see the trail almost the entire way to the Summit. There were many poeple when we did it, although, we missed the rush as we started at 6am and passed all the crowds on the way down.

argothorBierstadt through the willows  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 1998


Starting at Guenella Pass, I headed down into the willows. This was before they built the boardwalk, so I fight through the wet willows and swampy ground. But once through the hike was easy to the summit. Done this route two other times after they built the boardwalk.

Date Climbed: Aug 19, 1996


I arrived the afternoon before my hike up Bierstadt so I decided to sit at Guanella pass an watch returning hikers wander their way through the willows, I noticed a pattern of direction with hikers who seemed not to be lost providing me with a good idea of the route, It worked!
