Windy  Sucess!

From Spalding via Summit Lake. Fun trek/scramble up and around from Spalding over to Evans. Was in a hurry due to schedule and trying to catch my plane back home that afternoon. Ran out of time and had to catch a ride back down from the top of Evans. Not proud of it..

Via the West Ridge  Sucess!

The road was still closed so I had the summit to myself.

Sawtooth Ridge Route  Sucess!

Started around 6AM. Entire lot was filled by 6:30. Easy climb to Bierstadt. Sawtooth ridge had a little snow, but nothing to make the route technical. Evans was a little breezy. Descent was the worst part. Gully was hard to find, BUT there is a route down it. Bushwacking was horrible. Entire area was muddy from melting snow. More than ankle deep all the way back to regular trail. Back at car around 3:15PM.

Via Sawtooth  Sucess!

Lousy trail once we got over from Sawtooth due to snow and ice. Not a fan of the summit either.

First 14er  Sucess!

West ridge  Sucess!

Climbed on the way back from Mount Bierstadt, after coming across the Sawtooth we popped on over to Evans. Lots of other 'climbers' there the day we went, very crowded.

Up the Paved Road  Sucess!

I drove up the Mt Evans scenic road off I70 to where it was closed; this is normally where you would pay to go to top. I parked (plenty of spots) and then hiked up 15 miles to the summit (30 miles total). Round trip was 10 hours (6 up, 4 down). Great hike. Did it in standard hiking shoes. A lot of snow on the road but only difficult to cross in 3 or 4 places where there were drifts. Saw a group of big horn sheep midway. Great way to get up there in the winter with basic gear. Finished in dark with small flashlight, but you cannot get lost.

last day in CO  Sucess!

Had a few hours before flying back to Denmark, so made a 5 hour roundtrip: Guanella Pass - Mt. Spalding - Mt. Evans - Sawtooth summit - Guanella Pass. I had planned to do Sawtooth Ridge and Bierstadt but ran out of time. Weather started out wet and foggy, but ended up being quite ok.

Windy Summit  Sucess!

Windy and cold at summit, saw a goat and two babies near the top.

great hike with friend  Sucess!

Great hike up from Summit Lake with my buddy's son. The father met us at the summit parking lot with a cooler of cold ones, wonderful!

From Guanella Pass  Sucess!

#1 8-22-15 The ascent from the pass was a bit taxing because one is off trail so much of the time. Next time we will ascend the Mt Spalding nw ridge and go over the summit, then pick up the Summit Lake trail to Evans' west ridge. Then we'll take the ridge to the Evans summit. But the other route worked for it being our first time on this "route."

Bierstadt-Sawtooth-Evans Traverse  Sucess!

Really fun scrambling between Bierstadt and Sawtooth. It was further than I expected to the summit of Evans. Lots of goats on the summit of Evans. The descent was impressively muddy.
