|Peak:||Mt. Bierstadt (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/04/2011|
Great climb this morning, pre-dawn. Deep firm snow through the Willows, then intermittent hardpack to the summit. Crampons/microspikes may be useful high up, but some kind of floatation is definitely required down low. After sunrise the stuff softens fast and without snowshoes, the postholing is painful!
