Trip Report [hide]

It was a fantastic blue bird day and I rolled into the trail head (the summit of Mount Evans) at the crack of 11am. Gotta love all aspects of that!

On my descent off of Evans I think I picked the wrong gully and it was extremely loose (but doable).

I'd never been on the East Ridge of Mount Bierstadt and found that quite fun and a bit spicy in a few spots.

I didn't eat or drink enough and felt kinda lousy the last bit to the summit of Evans, but it sure was nice to have the car at the top of the mountain!
