Spring bierstadt  Sucess!

Snowshoes through the willows, then switched to microspikes.
Started at 5:30, summitted at 9ish.
By 11 or so it started getting really warm and the snow was getting soft - I saw people heading up who started hours later than me but was glad I had gotten up early

A weekend trip from Wisconsin

My first 14er! I flew in from Wisconsin the evening before and had zero acclimatization. It was tough but it felt great to reach the top! Beautiful weather that day as well!

Crowded  Sucess!

Got a sunrise start right around 6:00. The boardwalk across the willows was slick with morning frost or ice on it. One section isn't very level at all as one side has settled. I promptly ended falling and hanging over the boardwalk with my hat and sunglasses in the water. I apparently wasn't the only one this happened to that morning. At any rate, me and about 300 other people hit the summit that day, with at least 40 of them being on top at the same time as me. If it's solitude and peace and quiet that you like, don't do this one in the summer.

2014 season...I think  Sucess!

Flew from GNP to visit my sister in Denver. Met up with Jeff, who wanted to start climbing/hiking 14ers. We made our way up Bierstadt, over the sawtooth and to evans. Great day.

Late Afternoon into Evening Climb - Sunset from Summit  Sucess!

I climbed this one after work. The trail is straightforward, I wasn't worried about using a headlamp on the way back down. There weren't many on the trail that day. Happy Trails.

Very Wind Mt. Bierstadt ascent w/ Xavier  Sucess!

A cold, windy, mostly sunny ascent today. Snow from a storm last night made it slick in spots this morning. indicated that the wind speeds at 14,000ft were 46mph around the time we hit the summit. All in all a great day to be outside.

Bierstadt and Evans via Sawtooth  Sucess!

5:18 Added about a half mile by accidentally going towards Spaulding for a bit. Was very boggy and wet in the meadows below the Sawtooth gully, impossible to keep the feet dry. Pretty windy at Evans but awesome conditions!

Forgot carrier so carried 3 y.o. Journey to the summit  Sucess!

Realized we left the baby pack/carrier at home just before we got to the trailhead and didn't have time to go back. So I alternated carrying 31 pound Journey on my shoulders and then on my back by putting my arms under her and her holding my shoulders or neck. She fell asleep above 13,000 feet so I had to hold her in one position to just shy of 14,000 when she finally woke up. Arms and shoulders got worked! It was a bit tricky scrambling near the summit while holding her and not having free hands. Made it though and it was gorgeous on top!
