Hiked with Ryan and Mareshah. Very crowded mountain.
We got up (and down) early to avoid the crowds. Perfect day.
Fun climb with my son, but nasty willows in the snow.
With all the snow this spring hike should count as winter! Was able to go right up the snow to the summit. Caught in light snow (and fell IN the creek) on the descent.
Took my 10 year old newphew up for his First Fourteener and success!
With a great group of REU friends
Only a few other people and dead calm at the summit!
Solo up the West slopes, had the summit to myself, which is an extremely unusual feat for this peak. Gotta go in the winter if you want this peak to yourself!
Climbed solo on the same day that some kid committed suicide on Guanella Pass Road that leads up to the peak. Anyone ever read about this? Being a one way road, we waited three hours for them to clear the crime scene.
tour de abyss w/ nelson.
With LeeAnne, first 14er!
The exposure really is not great and none of the scrambling was difficult. More hike than scramble but definitely an enjoyable trip.
Lots of people.
A hike up from Guanella Pass then across the Sawtooth to Mount Evans! Awesome, and I had several minutes alone on Mount Bierstadt to take it all in!!
Beautiful day in the mountains. Did the Sawtooth Ridge in both directions. Was a very fun climb. Took rope but absolutely no need for a rope on this route. Class III, fun scramble
Fun, rewarding hike up and raced a thunderstorm on the way down. Excellent day!
spotted some adorable pikas! great day.
Started the hike up Bierstadt at 5:28PM. Topped out at 7:28. Treated to beautiful sunset. Loved it!
