Bierstadt and Evans via Sawtooth  Sucess!

5:18 Added about a half mile by accidentally going towards Spaulding for a bit. Was very boggy and wet in the meadows below the Sawtooth gully, impossible to keep the feet dry. Pretty windy at Evans but awesome conditions!

North Ridge  Sucess!

Did the entire Evans/Spaulding cirque traverse by first climbing the North Ridge of Evans. We climbed mostly on the ridge and enjoyed many class 3 sections including the east summit. Weather was bitter cold and VERY windy. Climbed with ndriley.

With the Fam  Sucess!

Did the long drive and hiked up with the fam at Sunset. Only a few people on the summit watching the sunset. Mountain Goats our car on the way up to the summit.

Evening Hike  Sucess!

From the lake hit Mt. Spaulding on the way up. Pretty with lots of wildlife.
Summit block was a little unclear and I ended up hiking up 3 different ones to make certain I was on top.

Fun Hike  Sucess!

Hiked up Bierstadt and then went to Mt. Evans via the Sawtooth Ridge. Sawtooth Ridge was terrifying. Ended up getting terrible altitude sickness and unfortunately didn't get to enjoy it as much as I would have wanted. Would definitely recommend though.

From Echo Lake  Sucess!

Beautiful morning climb. We slept in our car overnight at the Echo Lake Picnic Area. We were on the trail by 4:45 a.m. We only had to use our headlamps down to the road as the sky brightened quickly. We saw only one person in the Chicago Lakes Basin. Summited Spalding then continued on to the crowded summit of Evans. It could have been a lot worse considering it is the day before the 4th. Luckily, we hitchiked down with a nice couple since we didn't feel like going all the way back down when a road connects to the top.

Evans  Sucess!

Great hike from Summit Lake. We hit Spalding and then looped up to the summit and back down to the lake. Blue skies mixed with clouds, wind, and snow. Not bad for August.

#41 Bierstadt + Evans  Sucess!

Easy hike from Sawtooth Ridge IF you can find the cairns that mark the trail. Also fun part, I had to wait in one of the bathrooms for an hour to stay warm and dry as I waited for a storm to pass.

Great day on the mountain  Sucess!

Trail run to Mt. Evans from Summit Lake over Spalding and back down. Moved well and did it in 3.5 hours. Awesome views and fun scrambling. I might have a new favorite!

Via Summit Lake  Sucess!

Did this one up from Summit Lake after sleeping in my brother's SUV there. Hail and rain storm the afternoon before. Did Spalding and Warren afterwards. Not sure why but I signed the summitlog for this page in 2002 and somehow my entry got deleted.

2nd Apron with 6 peeps  Sucess!

From summit lake via the Second Apron with Doug, Duc, Nick, Mandi, and Bryce. Amazing though somewhat sketchy alpine slab. Hitch-hiked down.

Summit Lake/Spalding  Sucess!

Climbed up from Summit Lake, over Spalding and to the summit. Very busy on the mountain today, lots of hikers and full parking lots. Weather was great: sunny, not too windy, not too hot, not too cold. There was a flock of sheep hanging out by Summit Lake. After Evans, I headed over to Gray Wolf. This was my 2nd time on Evans.
