East Ridge Summit  Sucess!

Road was closed past Summit Lake parking area. Hiked up to saddle below Evans. Dropped down below Abyss Lake and climbed up to he East Ridge. There was snow on the route making the 3rd Class climb seem more difficult. Fun scramble up ridge to Summit. Only saw two people on the summit all day, and nobody on the East Ridge. Weather turned bad on us and we found ourself in a snow storm. We continued on and completed the Sawtooth Ridge and Summited Evans in the snow storm. This was a day with two rugged ridges. Great fun!

1st 14er of my life  Sucess!

To me, this was a very hard climb because I was 8 years old when I did it. From what I remeber, it was a nice day and a crowded trail.

Bierstadt at Night  Sucess!

Left Guanella Pass at 9:35 PM, got to the summit at 11:30 PM. The moon was so bright that we kept the headlamps in the packs. Tried to catch some Z's on the summit, but it was kinda chilly, so we continued to Evans via Sawtooth. Back at the TH at 6:35 am. Looong trip, especially with no sleep!

My first 14er  Sucess!

It was my first 14er, as it is for so many others. There were plenty of people but not actually as crowded as I worried it could be. The Western Slope is a steep, but very well-maintained trail, and it's more like 3.67 miles each way, not 3.0 miles as the main page says.

First 14er  Sucess!

My first 14er. Started really early, so there were just a few people on the summit while I was there, though big crowds were coming up while I descended.

Sawtooth  Sucess!

Beautiful day for a climb. Got to the top of Bierstadt fairly fast then proceeded on the sawtooth ridge. (class 3 my ass). traversed until about 300 vertical feet from Evans when black clouds rolled in. we retreated without regret. good day.

Very Crowded Trail  Sucess!

8 trillion people on the trail. Went off trail pretty early on. Makes it much more enjoyable. 2nd time up.

Most Crowded Mountain Ever!  Sucess!

Start early! My wife and I got descent parking at 6 AM and were at the top in 3 hours taking it easy. It took just as long to get down to the upward bound "traffic." Wow! Great views. Awesome morning to be on the top of Colorado!

Season opener  Sucess!

w/ C. Treiber and B. Gibbs via West. 5:00am Guanella Pass TH - 7:00am summit. Sawtooths were impassable without an axe - very cold and windy on summit.

yeaaaa  Sucess!

Wrecked hard on my bike yesterday and originally wanted to snave it up on Evan's but my left arm is useless so I just went for the easy hike up bierstadt! I had fun.

Fairly easy  Sucess!

Nothing notable, just a straight forward hike.

Last...  Sucess!

summit of the year for me. Rainy at the TH but cleared up. Sean and I were the first to reach the summit before the conga line to the top ensued

Late winter ascent  Sucess!

Beautiful day between two snow storms. First 14er. Skied up until 13,000ft, then climbed the rest, used crampons to get back down to where we left the skis. Except me and my buddy, not a single living soul in sight. Great time!
