From Summit Lake  Sucess!

Climb Mt Evens in the morning, then catch a Rockies game in the afternoon. Sat back at the game and looked at Mt. Evens most of the game. Got to love Colorado!!

Evans/Bierstadt  Sucess!

Nice hike across Sawtooth, but there were too many people on Evans and the weather was starting to turn bad.

Long time ago  Sucess!

I climbed up there along time ago. I don't remember what trail i started on, but i remember that the hike was pretty short, and my ears freaking hurt!

From Guanella Pass  Sucess!

Tried this the year before by going over Mt. Bierstadt and the Sawtooth, but the weather didn't cooperate. Instead, shortcutted Mt. Bierstadt and went up the steep gully from Guanella Pass (and the willows...ugh) to summit Mt. Evans.

Would've been more of a thrill, except for all the people at the top that felt like they'd accomplished something by hiking from the parking lot 50 feet below!

Evans via Sawtooth  Sucess!

Great hike. Started at the evans/epaulet saddle, hiked bierstadt's east ridge (very nice class 3 with great exposure), sawtooth to evans and back to the car.

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.
