TheWolfIsLooseFrom Bierdstat  Sucess!


A fun little scramble that was not as bad as advertised. In fact, the scrambling was quite minimal, and the only real exposure came in the one spot almost immediately after coming through the notch that dumps you on the west side of the ridge.

I had met two dudes on the summit of Bierdstat and we decided to complete the traverse together. After coming through the notch, the smell of sweet bud was strong... I realized it was emanating from a girl up on the ramp that leads to the tundra above after she yelled down to tell me the line I was following was "bomber."

On the way up to Evans, I met a girl who was also from Pennsylvania. She only lived an hour from me and wanted to do some climbing together back home... sweet! She was doing a quick solo ascent of Evans on her way home from California. My other two friends took the standard trail to the summit of Evans, while she and I just scrambled/climbed up to the top via out own made-up path.

It started snowing on the summit of Evans, and thunder could be heard, so we parted ways with my new PA friend. We took the gully down to Scott Gomer Creek. During our descent of the gully, the skies opened up, and I was once again being hailed on in Colorado... A regular occurrence indeed!!

From Bierstadt, fun but lots of meandering, finishes on sandy funness. If you stick to the ridge it's class III, but there is definitely a lot of use trails just to the south side of the ridge making it 2+.

Good day out climbing with my buddy Jim from Michigan.
Ridge is a lot easier than advertised. But fun none-the-less!

Finally did this on a perfect day (50 deg, no wind, sunny). There's good scrambling if you stay right on the ridge crest proper and avoid the "trail"...

Nice little scramble. Very enjoyable and recommended route for picking up these two peaks. The exposure really is not great and none of the scrambling was difficult.

Evans, Sawtooth, Bierstadt, Back... fun, easy, wished it was a little tougher... definitely no "knife edge" like the guy in the parking lot said

I disagree in calling this route Class 3, and I realize that runs afoul of Gerry Roach's call. I came out from sea level, spent the night, and climbed this route from Evans to Bierstadt and back the next day, and though there were a few arguably Class 3 spots, I was disappointed not to find some real scrambling. The only decent scrambling I found was in getting from one side of the ridge to the other.

Bottom line: If you're newer to this game, don't let the descriptions scare you. If you're not, don't get your hopes up.

This was my first real scramble, all I know is that I completed this route in 2005, I remember it being fun but very tedious.

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 1998


Started at Guanella Pass, waded though the famous Scott Gomer willows before the boardwalk was put in, summited Bierstadt and then did the Sawtooth to get to Evans. Headed back to the trailhead without going back over the Sawtooth. Got to the car just as the skies let loose with buckets of rain.

Bierstadt/Sawtooth/Evans then bushwacked down the gully back to Guanella pass. Ran into a herd of mountain goats and just missed getting caught in a crazy T-storm. Good times.
