Short But Fun  Sucess!

James and I took turns hiking Evans/watching the baby from Summit Lake since we have a 6-month-old who can't quite go to that elevation yet. Shortest ascent of a 14er I've ever done, but didn't feel too much like I was cheating because of the steepness of the trail toward to top. It was a little bit demoralizing to top out at a parking lot, though. Beautiful mountain and scenery nonetheless.

Evans  Sucess!

On the way home through Colorado, stopped up at the top, caught the sunrise with 1 other party, then took a nap in the car. Woke up to find the place had turned into a mall.

Finally finished the Front Range after climbing Bierstadt for the second time and crossing the Sawtooth.

Fun climb  Sucess!

Had avoided it because of the people/road, but was actually a fun climb!

Psuedo-cheater  Sucess!

On foot from guanella  Sucess!

Marni, Turbo and I had to do this one on foot since bikes and cars don't count by our rules. Lots of fun, the willows really weren't that bad.

Mt. Evans  Sucess!

Had to actually climb it to make it legit.

West Ridge from Summit Lake  Sucess!

Nice, easy hike to Mt. Spalding and over the ridge to Evans. I only wish that the summit could have been a little bit less crowded with tourists, but that's just how it is, I guess, with Mt. Evans. Very beautiful day for a hike, but also very windy on top!

This time from the Mt Evans road  Sucess!

My third time on top with my sister and brother in law. I am always amazed at how the altitude affects you more when you drive to the top as opposed to climbing to 14,000 feet in one day.

Great day  Sucess!

Climbed the boulders on the Northeast ridge from Summit Lake. Lots of fun: i needed a day like this after a rough day on Bierstadt the day before.

#14  Sucess!

I first climbed Mt Evans on an unrecorded date in 1983. This was my 14th time summiting Evans. Some of the climbs were in combination with Bierstadt via the Sawtooth. Other climbs were in combination with Spalding from Summit Lake. This time was from Guanella Pass skirting Bierstadt. - Jul 3, 2008 7:36 pm Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2008

The Snave  Sucess!

Excellent short climb to start the season. Very interesting mixed climbing near the top of the narrow colliour.

via Crystal couloir  Sucess!

A repeat climb, this time via the Crystal couloir, which was surprisingly firm on a warm day. Started from Echo Lake so that Jim could get his 3K vertical and followed the road to Summit Lake, cutting a couple switchbacks. Added West Evans, Warren, Rogers, and Goliath on the way down. Fine glissade down the north face!

From Echo Lake-up the "Baker direct" to the NE face and to 3 other mountains  Sucess!

16 miles roundtrip, climbed Evans (repeat climb) via the NE face, then Warren (13er), Rogers (13er), and Goliath (12er). Twas a bluebird day and I felt great!!

Nice snowy scramble  Sucess!

Got a bit out of breath around the summit. I was surprised at the quality of summit views.

Northeast Face from Summit Lake  Sucess!

Scrambled up the steep slopes above Summit Lake. Have hiked the road (when closed by weather) several times. My daughter's first 14-er. (I carried her in a back pack!)
