My 3rd 14er  Sucess!

Climbed Bierstadt after doing Torreys and Grays in the morning. Started around 10:40 and made it back to the car around 1.

Good first 14er  Sucess!

Quick climb. Not from Colorado so I was pleased when I didn't have any problems with the altitude. Passed 10 other groups going up. It looked like other people were struggling with the altitude a little bit more.

First time  Sucess!

Nice easy hike. Bagged in 2 hours.

Cold and Rainy but still fun.

Mt. Bierstadt  Sucess!

Started from Lake Fork Valley, great place to see mountain goats.

Bierstadt - Sawtooth - Evans  Sucess!

My first 14er! From Guanella Pass to the Bierstadt summit, then over Sawtooth ridge to Mount Evans and then dropped down into the willows to return to the car. A very long day.

From Guanella Pass...  Sucess!

South Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked the South Ridge from Scott Gomer Creek Trailhead. To the best of my knowledge, nobody else summited via that route that day (and it was a Saturday). Got great shots of a mountain goat near the top.

from Guanella Pass again. Next time it'll be a harder route.

First 14er  Sucess!

Hindsight is 20/20, and I was in idiot. I had moved to CO from TX a few weeks earlier and I was overly excited about the mountains. I set out this day with little more than a light jacket and water. I was wearing a pair of 3-4 year old New Balance running shoes with zero traction. When I reached the summit, it was whiteout and the snow began to blanket the ground as I descended. I made it in one piece.

West side  Sucess!

Took my girlfriend at the time up for her first 14er. Paid dearly for it.

winter  Sucess!

Winter ascent from below Guanella Pass, wasn't plowed so that added another 3-4 km to the thing. Fun day, did it in 8 hours total coming from Iowa the day before (yay not acclimating). The summit had insane winds on it so we only spent about 1 minute on top, would love to do the sawtooth someday.

a bit snowy  Sucess!

why not.

Nice traverse  Sucess!

I liked the traverse to Evan's a lot, it was empty and cold, filled snow and it provided awesome views!

Standard "Willows" Route  Sucess!

Thrashed through the willows on my first climb of this peak. So much easier now with the boardwalks - easier on the tundra too.

#36  Sucess!

This was my 36th climb of Bierstadt. The first was 7-19-86

First of many  Sucess!

This was my first of many climbs of Bierstadt. Some of the climbs have been combined with a traverse of The Sawtooth over to Mt Evans. I've had nice days on Bierstadt, even in the winter, and I've experienced brutal weather. I've been chased off Bierstadt by lightning and one one occasion turned back close to the summit because of cold wind. On that occasion I got frostbite on the bridge of my nose - the only exposed flesh.
