Route Climbed: West Ridge from Guanella Pass Date Climbed: July 11, 1987  Sucess!

Finding one's way thru the willows is what you really remember from this climb. That and the hoarde of tourists near the top that gawk at you carrying a pack (I know they're thinking: "Why didn't you just drive up and hike from the parking area?"). If I had to answer that question, they wouldn't understand the answer anyway. Alas....just make sure the weather holds out ok if you try this and have to return to the western summit...I wouldn't want to be there in a storm.

Route Climbed: Echo Lake Date Climbed: 1976  Sucess!

One of the first 14'er that I climbed. I can trace my addiction to the mountains back to the mountains in Colorado.

Route Climbed: South slopes Date Climbed: September, 1990  Sucess!

Climbed this as part of a dayhike that included Mount Bierstadt. After summiting Bierstadt I dropped down chutes into the Abyss Lake basin, and then groveled up the loose slope to the summit of Evans. Bit of a crowd scene on top with all the cars and sightseers, but the Colorado Rockies are beautiful no matter what the conditions are...

Route Climbed: Sawtooth from Bierstadt (Guanella Pass) Date Climbed: June 8, 2004  Sucess!

What a way to start the summer! The Sawtooth was awesome! Encountered a few snowfields (next time I will take my ice axe). Glad we took the extra effort to hike over the ridges (on the way back) to meet back up with the Bierstadt trail, in lieu of trekking through the willows at the bottom.

Route Climbed: Northeast Face Date Climbed: June 5, 1999  Sucess!

Started from Summit Lake, and hiked alone the ridge line south of the bowl. Alot of snow still on the peak - a few people were hiking with skis. Very cold at the summit.

Route Climbed: Notheast Face Date Climbed: July 30, 2000  Sucess!

Started from Summit Lake with a co-worker. This was his first 14er and my second climb of this peak. We hiked up the bowl and through the rock field. My co-worked got really worn out and had to rest frequently. The round trip time was about 4 hours for 2 miles.

Route Climbed: Evans Loop Date Climbed: May 31, 2003  Sucess!

Started from Summit Lake and ascended over Mount Spaulding. Continued on to the summit of Evans along the ridgeline. Descended the same way instead of continuing the entire loop.

Route Climbed: Summit lake Date Climbed: September 18, 2004  Sucess!

Decided to do this one at night since my friends decided against climbing for the rest of the weekend. Went up the class three route instead of the class one route, which I realized to my chagrin 3/4 of the way up. Managed to make it up and back before the cold front hit, and the views of the cityscape were quite nice.

Route Climbed: Tourist Route Date Climbed: August 3rd, 2004  Sucess!

Drove up and walked to the summit for sunrise on the morning of Aus 3rd. Amazing views of Denver and the Mts. Though it was quite cold, and very windy up top.

Took one week vacation, try to visit ( hike ) as many peak as possible. Mt. Evans was the first stop. It was beautifull view. It was windy, no thunderstorm--LUCK ME.

Route Climbed: Summit Lake, Road Date Climbed: '70's, '80's, 90's  Sucess!

I've done this mountain many times, one time even participating in the Mount Evans Road Run! Actually, it's quite a nice mountain; many times we'd go to Summit Lake, then go up and over, and do the traverse to Bierstadt. Lots of things to do on Evans, lots of ways to do them!

Route Climbed: Sawtooth Date Climbed: June 2004  Sucess!

Combined with Bierstadt and the Sawtooth ridge, this makes for a great day of class 3. Almost wish I had avoided the summit crowds of cars and people. The gully back to Guanella is an interesting place.

Crowded at the top...

Route Climbed: Summit Lake via Spalding Date Climbed: July 30, 2004  Sucess!

It was very windy and pretty cold at the summit. It wasn't as crowded up there as I had expected. There were only a few hikers doing this the "hard way", most of them were coming up from the parking lot.
