Not The Best 14er  Sucess!

But I can't wait to go back and do the Sawtooth Ridge.

Via Abyss Lake basin  Sucess!

Parked off the Mount Evans road and headed down to the basin. I recommend this route very scenic and nice finis to the summit. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.

Southwest Slopes  Sucess!

Trying to get over to Evans too via the Sawtooth, but a wicked storm blew in so that my hair was standing straight up and my partner kept shocking me. Terrified me into being more prepared and starting much earlier from that point on.

First 14'er

First summit attempt, a lot harder than anticipated, but very fun. I will try again this summer when the snow isnt up to my butt.

Western slope

Made it to 13,800. It was a very windy day and we added three miles to the day by having to park and walk to the trail head. We spent too much time in the willows and we decided to turn back to make to the truck my nightfall, which we barely did. It was dark by Georgetown. Overall a great day. Again soon.

Route: West Slopes  Sucess!

Pretty easy stroll. Got a very early start to beat the masses. Then headed on to Sawtooth and Evans. Good stuff.

from Guanella Pass  Sucess!

Casual Front Range hike with the masses. Hard to beat now, with the boardwalk in place.

from Guanella Pass  Sucess!

Snowshoed to the top. That works well going over the willows. No boardwalk in those days.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Nice remote class 3 scramble. Nobody does this route, so go do it!

Bierstadt was my regular 14er when I lived out in Colorado, ascents included a winter and moonlight ascent.

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
