A fun, short and direct line up Mt Evans. You can see the whole line from the parking lot :)
A short climb from the lake to the summit, we did this route in the evening and caught the sunset from the summit of Evans.
Interesting mixed climbing during the last 100 feet or so. Climbed it unprotected, but there were some sketchy spots. I agree with the the other posts - don't even think of downclimbing this one. Low class 5 moves are required in the last 50 feet to top out.
Chef007 and I, hungover and happy. good climb
Like-wise, no climbers around here for me either. This route was fun. There are a few hairy sections, I think I hit some 4+ - 5- moves. It gets steep too. Don't be tempted by those stupid cars in the lot, walk your butt off this mountain or hike up with a bike (or better yet bring a unicycle to save weight).
I higly recommend this climb it was a lot of fun. I think I was even the only one climbing the mountain that whole day I saw bicycles and and construction crew but no hikers. Get out more y'all! (trip report to come eventually)
