Accessibility = Last year I was down there the biggest problem I had was getting near some of the 14ers I'm looking in the area of Evans/bierstads/grays torreys
If anyone could reccomend which area I might have better luck getting closer to trailheads

Those are about the two most diametrically opposed peaks, both in challenge and location, as anyone could find in CO!

I might add Bross if I just go to the Breckenridge area.

Gear means nothing if you're solo (which he's talking about) unless your goal is to make it easier to find the body. I personally wouldn't get on anything steep unless it's blown clear or a ridge line if I'm solo. I made that mistake once, but fortunately hit a tree before the slide went very far.
