Took the Easy Way  Sucess!

No, I didn't drive up! But, we (my son and I) hiked the scree field from Summit Lake (Northeast Face I). Great view during the drive, hike and summit, despite threatening weather (it started raining at end of descent). Then we were headed back home to Oklahoma!

Route Climbed: Tour d'Abyss  Sucess!

Started at 13,300 on the Evans road, up Bierstadt's east ridge, over the Sawtooth, Spaulding, and Evans. This is a fantastic route!

Climbed with 9 Year Old Daughter  Sucess!

My daughter took an hour nap at the summit. Stayed at summit two hours. Lots and lots of loud people at the top who drove up. In fact the low point at the high point was listening to someone's car alarm going off. Not too serene... Fourth 14er for me, 2nd for her and her favorite stuffed animal, Polo bear.

Sunny and warm with chance of Goats  Sucess!

I met a bunch of goats and summited in a t-shirt with wintery views all around. What more could I ask for, eh?

3rd time was the charm  Sucess!

Took me three attempts to finally get up Evans. Climbed from Guanella Pass - west ridge via Bierstadt/Sawtooth. Got onto the ridge and started dealing with strong, frigid winds. Not fun but a summit nonetheless. Descended in snow showers at 10AM.

Summit Lake TH, Ascend NE Ridge, Descend NW Ridge to TH  Sucess!

A fun scramble, both up and down. Big billy goats laying about on the rock ledges.

Finally decided to try a summer ascent, 4th times a charm. Did the Sawtooth ridge, good fun

Summit Lake/Evans/Spalding  Sucess!

From Summit Lake to Evans to Spalding and back to the lake. Great hike, most of it well above 13000 feet. Nice day too, and it wasn't too crowded.

Sawtooth  Sucess!

The sawtooth is an amazing traverse, but the elevation kicked my butt during the last mile or so to Evans. We ended up walking down the road and getting a ride to Idaho springs from a friendly couple who had hiked the cirque that day (thanks!). Pictures from the traverse are at .

Only climbers at the top  Sucess!

There was a circus at the top, and I think that we were the only climbers...

Mt. Evans  Sucess!

Great day for a bike ride. Started in Idaho Springs at 8:30am. Hit the summit at 12:30. Went from sunshine to snow in 15 minutes. Took 1 hr. to get down. Great day!

The sawtooth rocks.

Route Climbed: Sawtooth Ridge Date  Sucess!

I absolute loved the Sawtooth, very high on the fun meter. I got a laugh the fat guy in North Face gear that “climbed” from the parking lot. Lots of Mountain Goats in the area. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.
