My Second Summit  Sucess!

Peak number 2. Didn't go across the Sawtooth, too spent once I hit summit. 52 more to go.

not very fun  Sucess!

seems like this mountain goes straight up with little redeeming qualities other than you've climbed a 14er. I summitted in the winter, maybe it would be better in summer.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Have climbed this a few times. Summer of 02 and then twice in winter type conditions for prep to Deanli. Just having the cold, wind, altitude, and heavy pack. Always a good trip.

Bierstadt - West Slopes  Sucess!

West Slopes main trail on a Sunday - VERY crowded. Clear, fair weather and light wind. My wife's first 14er - nice day out and good acclimation for later in season. Next time up to Guanella we'll probably go to Squaretop --- all day we kept looking wistfully through the crowds at it's calm and quiet.

Tough climb  Sucess!

For my sea level lungs! First 14er used as acclimatization for Mt Elbert. Great weather, windy up top!

Short Hike  Sucess!

This was by far the easiest 14er I've done, considering you are very close to the summit when you start out. Still, it was a great day out with friends! I would say it's a good starter peak, but I wouldn't want to lead anyone to believe all 14ers are this easy.

My First 14er  Sucess!

My very first 14er, and what a great experience! Skies were blue, the sun was out, and the trail from Guanella Pass was jampacked full of dayhikers from Denver. We experienced a very crowded summit, and rain on the way down. Regardless, the experience was enjoyable enough to prompt an addiction to climbing. Thank you Bierstadt!

A good combo  Sucess!

The West Slope was a good choice to keep an eye on the weather!
I thoroughly enjoyed taking the Sawthooth Ridge to bag Mt. Evans too.

Nice winter climb  Sucess!

This was my wife's first 14er and we decided to do it on a blustery day in November. Despite some cold feet due to too many socks we made it to the summit and enjoyed a fine view of a snow covered landscape. We even saw the "SKI" runs!
