"Winter" solo  Sucess!

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.

Gotta go in winter  Sucess!

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!

Western Slopes in winter  Sucess!

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.

Sawtooth Ridge  Sucess!

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.

Perfect day for it!  Sucess!

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!!

Sawtooth  Sucess!

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

A 3hr ascent  Sucess!

This was the first peak in our long 12hr day that included descending the northwest ridge, over the Sawtooth's 'gendarme' and up thru the gully notch, around mt Spalding to mt Evans. Nice boardwalk in the lower wetlands or shall we say mudlands. Partly cloudy with a little wind but an excellent day hike.

Once per season?  Sucess!

2nd time bagging Bierstadt, first time was February. Guess I have to go back this summer and fall? All snow and ice avoidable. Great day for hiking, 3 hours up and then headed to Evans via Sawtooth. Clouds stuck around the summit but wasn't too bad with sporadic wind gusts. Saw about 10 others at the summit.
