Absolutely loved the scrambling between the two peaks but was told about a route down from the middle of the sawtooth...was nothing but a rockslide and my friend (his first 14ers) and I thank God we are still alive after that adventure. Nevertheless, would do the sawtooth again in a heartbeat!
Success!!! We left around 4:30 AM. Summitted Bierstadt around 6:45. The Sawtooth wasn't as difficult as expected, but was spectacular nonetheless. Summited Evans around 9 I think. We took a roundabout way to bascamp (down the river between Evans and Spaulding; wouldn't recommend it). It was scenic, but definitely not the quickest route. We spent a couple hours navigating the rivers and bushes in the river valley. I would definitely do this route again. The views from Evans, Bierstadt, and the river valley were absolutely incredible. (Once my camera connection works, I'll post a few) Very memorable route!
