|Peak:||Mt. Bierstadt (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/16/2013|
Standard route information as of 6.16.2013 - the route starts out pretty muddy but the foot bridges help, if you're careful you can avoid most of it. The mud starts to dissipate with the gains - the route does have some snow melt but nothing too crazy. As previously reported, around the 12,500 mark there is some good packed snow, but very sparse and only in 2 main areas on the West slopes, I had my spikes but did not need them. The summit ridge also has some snow, hard and packed, you can veer left and avoid or go that route but I would suggest traction.
