Summit of Mount Bierstadt
(Summit of Mount Bierstadt: Mike, Ralean, Me)

Summary

Mount Bierstadt Elevation 14,065ft. (Jul. 29, 2000) "West Slopes" trail
After the previous years disappointment I decided to tackle another 14er and won. I climbed this one with a few friends. I showed up at the trial head planning to climb alone, but when I arrived I found a couple of  friends from work and decide to climb with them. I could have climbed the peak faster but I spent and hour at the top waiting for our slowest climbing party member. On the top I was hoping for better views but it ended up being blurred by the smoke from a forest fires. This peak is just to the southwest of Mount Evens and is reached by driving the Guenila Pass road which climbs up from the west side of Georgetown.
