Standard route from Guanella  Sucess!

We got up early enough to be in the first "batch" of summitters, but not early enough to avoid the mobs of other hikers on our descent. Still, it's good to see so many people out getting exercise, especially families with kids and teens. Partner: Husband.

Sawtooth  Sucess!

Had the summit all to myself at 6:30 a.m. prior to traversing the Sawtooth and summiting Evans. Great climb on a beautiful day.

Crowded  Sucess!

Hiked with Boy Scout Troop. Beat the storm coming in. I never can figure out the people who start late and keep going up when the clouds are rolling in. I figure they got soaked.

Got one, no sawtooth  Sucess!

We were after the combo and the sawtooth but Marni and Turbo weren't liking the snow cover and we backed off back up Bierstadt. Still a nice hike and a few little glissades on the way down.

Standart route  Sucess!

Several hundred people shared this one with me. Short and sweet.

Hot  Sucess!

There was a bit of a heat wave, and the sun was intense. 5 hours RT for three lowlanders. The mountain was pretty busy for a mid-week climb.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Beautiful day - first Colorado 14er, no altitude problems, gorgeous weather even though it was so humid we couldn't light a fire the night before. Summit was pretty crowded even though it was a Tuesday. Met some guys who were trying to eat donuts on top of every 14er.

Beautiful day, and then...  Sucess!

My plans to attempt the sawtooth to Evans were thwarted by a storm over Evans. As I was descending an intense storm arose with a lot of people still on the mountain. It was a long, wet hike back with a steady barrage of lightning.

An adventure  Sucess!

After summiting, crossed the sawtooth and over to Evans. I ran out of food, got rained on, and was tired.

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.

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.

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.
