Winter ascent from Echo  Sucess!

Cut one switchback down low, then a long, windy, 5 mile slog up the road to the standard n.e. slopes route. Congrats to Steve Gladbach who becomes only the 4th person to complete the CO 14ers in calendar winter. Strong group of folks to be out with!

From Echo Lake  Sucess!

This was a huge day. Steve Gladbach finished climbing Colorado's Fourteeners per winter today!!!!! He's the 4th person to do so.
Was privledged to accompany him up Evans through some brutal winds alongside his brother, Bill, Mark, Greg, Darin Baker, Kevin Baker and Sarah Thompson.
A sunny but ~18 mile RT day with excellent people!

Tourist Trap  Sucess!

Evans via Bierstadt and Sawtooth. Remind me to never climb another mountain that has a paved road all the way to the top. Battled several van loads of tourists trying to find the "high point" after spending over 5 hours getting there. Would recommend just stopping at the West Summit to enjoy the views. Its only a few feet lower in altitude, and will probably be empty.

Four times, three routes  Sucess!

9/20/03 - Sawtooth Traverse from Mount Bierstadt (started at Guanella Pass).

1/2/11 - Windy winter ascent from Echo Lake.

2/28/11 - Another windy ascent from Echo Lake, this time with Steve Gladbach as he made history by becoming the 4th person to complete Colorado's 14ers in winter! Slipped on some ice on the road during the descent and my sunglasses cut up my face when I faceplanted... requiring 11 stitches.

3/7/15 - From the Guanella Pass north side closure with a fun group of 10 friends. Bluebird winter day, shockingly dry up high despite recent major storms.

Chicago Lakes  Sucess!

Hiked up to Summit Lake from the trailhead at Echo Lake and past the Chicago Lakes. Summited Spalding and Evans.
Also my first 14er (and second Colorado summit behind Spalding)

Evans Ascent  Sucess!

Ran a half marathon from Echo Lake to the summit of Mount Evans in 3:31. Slow, I know, but fun!

Mount Evans  Sucess!

During a trip to Colorado I went to Mount Evans the day after a big storm went through the area.

Run up the road  Sucess!

Attempted two times from the west, but got stormed out. The road was closed at Summit Lake and ended up running up the road from there.

Bierstadt-Sawtooth-Evans  Sucess!

Surprised to find that the trail through the willows is much easier to follow than 5 years ago. Good day!

Fun scramble  Sucess!

When given a half day, we headed up some ramps and a gully on the north face of Mt. Evans. There were a few fun 4th class moves at the top. Mt. Spalding was an easy bag on the hike out.

Bierstadt - Sawtooth - Evans  Sucess!

Great loop. Decended through the willows, which wasn't all that much fun. Luckily it wasn't too wet, but it wasn't too hard to imagine. When coming down the gully, the cars sure do look far away.

biked  Sucess!

Biked up from Idaho Springs. Whoosh -- really took it out of me -- a lot harder than I anticipated.

West Ridge from Bierstadt/Sawtooth  Sucess!

Awesome day with no threat of storms. This route has a bit of everything. Descent back to Guanella took way longer than I thought it would.

Hike and a bit of running  Sucess!

From Echo Lake, Chicago Lakes, Mt. Spalding route with my oldest son. Ran most of the way up to Chicago Lakes. On the way down five emergency vehicles were driving up, with sirens on. I wonder what would have happened.

Northeast Face and Windchill in August  Sucess!

Did the "easy" northeast face from Summit Lake after camping at Echo Lake the night before. Fitful sleep at high altitude seemed like it was going to be a problem, but it helped a ton early on in the hike. Topped out from the steep route at about 10am, but scrapped plans to loop over West Evans and Spalding due to the gusty winds. Other than gusts and cold(!), it was a gorgeous day with great views in all directions!
