Mount Evans Trip Report (#2069)
- Signed By: Christopher Dorry
- Date submitted: July 01, 2001
This climb was completed with Shawn Dorry (my brother) and was my 9th 14er climbed. We started from Guenalla pass and bushwacked our way through the willows (almost 2 hours), to the steep gully, and finally to the ridge between Bierstadt and Evans. There was no clear cut trail the whole entire way. Total time up was 3.75 hours, and down time was 2.5 hours. Appx. round trip mileage was 10 miles. Again, very hard going up and down through the willows to the parking lot. I don't think there is an "easy" way to do this, and I wouldn't recommend this route if interested in climbing Mt. Evans.
