********************************************

*   ORIGINAL TRIP DESCRIPTION

********************************************

1* To REGISTER  email me with your fitness level, but please be precise. So for example if you hike/run/bike/walk, please be precise and tell me when, how much, how fast, how often. Being "in shape" it does not really tell me much :-). Trip example, leaders references , running, hiking, walking details are all ok

2* Start time will be decided the day of ... depending on the weather . In normal conditions we should start around 530

3* The pace will be AVERAGE , the goal of this particular trip is the COMMUNITY aspect so we will stay together. I rather have the faster people help me and others , then split the group 

4* If you are accepted on this trip ( meaning you are currently in shape and have done similar hikes that involve SOME SCRAMBLING ) then i am sure you are familiar with the 14er website  https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7002274/mt-bierstadt-mt-evans-via-the-sawtooth and  https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=bier4&peak=Mt.+Evans

5* If you have WFA or are a CMC trip leader let me know , this way we could take a few extra people

6* Mandatory gear ... is whatever *you* need to be comfortable standing still for an hour in the rain at 13,000 feet this time of the year

7* I will probably email 3-4 days before the trip with more details ... like extra gear, microspikes and so on ... or carpool location , usually the Wooly Mammoth lot

8* Thoughts ? Comments ? Suggestions ? Please DO email me.

Notes

********************************************

*    TRIPS DETAILS AS OF Tue 9/25

********************************************
1 - weather looks decent , CLEAR and no rain https://www.mountain-forecast.com/peaks/Mount-Bierstadt/forecasts/4286. But it will be TWENTY degrees on the top , so you definitely need big fluffy GLOVES

2 - Start trailhead is Guanella Pass Trailhead https://goo.gl/maps/zKfH7BA6jst   

3 - START TIME - Since the weather looks good, let's start at 630am. I will probably car camp there , so let's meet at the small parking lot ( https://goo.gl/maps/zKfH7BA6jst ) on the East side of the road. GUESSING it will take us 2-3hrs to summit. 2-3hrs to Evans. And 2-3 hrs back. So between 6 and 9 hours.

4 - Once we get up Bierstadt , some people told me they might go back to the car by themselves ( it is an easy trail to follow) . If you continue over the Sawtooth with me , we DEFINITELY MUST STAY CLOSE TOGETHER 

5 - CARPOOL OPTION - Wooly Mammoth Parking lot at 515am ( it takes 65 minutes to get to the trailhead ) . I will not be there since i am car camping close to the trailhead. 

6 - if you do not plan to show up , please cancel on the CMC website 

7 - If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, concerns , please email me directly before Thursday around 5pm  cmc @ dumi.us 

 

Thanks

Bogie
