First 14er  Sucess!

I'm convinced I did this in 2001, but my pictures are dated 2000. I didn't know what I was getting into on my first 14er and got jelly-legs on the way down. I think the 2nd trip up, I cut 1 hour off the 1st trip's time.

Winter ascent via Guanella Pass   Sucess!

Flew into Denver at 8pm with 4 guys from the CMC. Drove up I-70 to Guanella Pass Road with the intention of camping at Burning Bear campground only to discover that Guanella Pass is CLOSED. Damn. We had to drive all the way around to get to the south side of the pass. Got to sleep at 2:30am and woke at 7:30am. Made the summit but was dogging the whole way. 0-14K in less than 24 hours on 5 hours sleep. What a long day!

Twice in one day  Sucess!

Hiked the west slopes and took the North Face gully to the summit.

Dropped 700' to the low point of the sawtooth and had to climb back up.

I'm counting it twice. =D

Night Sawtooth- Tiring!  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!

Cold and calm  Sucess!

Somewhat longer due to the winter road closure but clear cold day was perfect. Skiied part of the way down but not enough snow for many turns.

gorgeous day  Sucess!

Finally got around to it. Was going to do it in combo with Evans via the Sawtooth but a member of my group didn't like the exposure. Couldn't have asked for a nicer day.

an early 14er  Sucess!

I've summited this 14er several times. I remember that my fingers and hands have been frozen at the summit more than once.

Route Climbed: From Guenalla Pass  Sucess!

What can I say? We did the Sawtooth traverse but had to bail 200 feet below Evans Summit due to bad weather..

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.
