Double Dip!

Amazing Climb! The Sawtooth was fun and much easier than I expected it to be. The crowd of motorists at the summit was disappointing. Hiked the west ridge route down and had to bushwack through the willows in order to get back to Guanella Pass.

The Crystal  Sucess!

Climbed the Crystal Couloir on Father's Day. The weather and conditions were perfect. My wife and daughter drove to the top and met me at the summit for a Father's Day celebration.

Crystal Couloir  Sucess!

Climbed the Crystal couloir in about 2 hours from Summit Lake. It was cold (well below freezing) and windy today. Nice fun moderate snow climb at altitude. We had very hard snow for the approach to the couloir and good step kicking snow for the climb.

A good combo  Sucess!

No one up there on a cold October day. Did Bierstadt and Evans via the Sawtooth Ridge (loved the Sawtooth). I would enjoy going back to try some of the snow routes on Evans!

Evansville  Sucess!

Lost in the willows during the rain going from Guanella. So much fun. Good times.

via Sawtooth  Sucess!

Did Bierstadt first. A long day, with negotiating the willows on the way out, but a great twofer. Glad I knocked both peaks off before any more permit requirements are imposed.

Bierstadt/Sawtooth/Evans bushwack  Sucess!

Sawtooth Traverse was fun. Evans peak very crowded with tourists. Bushwack back to Guanella pass not so fun. Just missed getting caught in a killer T-Storm!

the sawtooth traverse  Sucess!

After an uneventful summit of Bierstadt my friend and I took the sawtooth which was what I was mostly psyched for. Had a great time scrambling...helped lead some other hikers with maps and completely quizzical looks on their faces through the sawtooth. Then took a very shady and not actual trail down from the "v" of the sawtooth...adrenaline rush, gotta love it! Would definitely do the sawtooth again!

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.

From Summit Lake over Spaulding  Sucess!

Hailstorm on summit

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.
