I met a few people at the top. This was my 3rd 14er. The willows below were a mess due to melt-off. All before they put in that wooden walkway. Good weather.

One of the easiest 14ers I have done. Willows were not as bad as expected. Some fresh snow on top as well. 14er #5

Made the summit with Chef007(Adam) at 9:47am. Enjoyed the nice views of the Sawtooth. Bierstadt was quite simply the easiest all around 14er I have ever climbed.

My first 14er. Great day! Very windy but great weather otherwise. Climbed with friend of mine. Very good, easy route for winter. Well-marked route all the way around. They aren't kidding about the willows, they can be a pain if you lose the trail for a second in deep snow.

I couldn't have asked for an easier day for my first winter 14er. Thanks to all the SP'ers for putting this together

This might have been the only day without wind since November. A perfect day for the 3rd annual SP Rockies Winter Gathering.

Springlike conditions during SP Winter Gathering. First winter ascent, much easier than expected. Great people, good times.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to spend much time with everyone; however, it was great meeting everyone and putting the names with the faces. It is people like you that make these gatherings successful. Thanks for showing up and making this the best gathering yet! See you next year!

Another wonderful SP Winter Gathering. After attempting to summit on two previous Gatherings, I finally made it. Although I was last to summit, with that many fellow SPrs breaking trail for me, the snow wasn't slowing me down...just the usual flatlander lungs. Great day, beautiful weather, gorgeous mountain views, and great company...it just doesn't get any better.

Climbed with many fellow SP'ers on the winter sp outing. Great company. Weather clear and relatively warm. Will this day set the record for most recorded SP-ascents on a single peak? Usually crowding on route is a pain, but today it was fun to laugh and joke with so many people, finally meeting them face-to-face.

Route Climbed: West Chicago Creek Trailhead Date Climbed: August 9th, 2003  Sucess!

After sleeping in the tent, that was setup on the side of the road, I drove the 1/8 mile to the trailhead and parked the car and in the middle of the night proceeded towards the summit. Somehow I was not 1st but 2nd after a bunch of young kids already made themselves comfortable on the summit. Great views, and crisp air that morning....
