|Peak:||Mt. Evans (14er)|
|Route:||West Ridge via Chicago Creek|

We ascended Evans after traversing from Bierstadt via the Sawtooth. The Sawtooth was clear of snow and well cairned (but never rely on cairns to get you through). After hiking up to Evans' summit, we returned to Guanella Pass via the West Slopes and headed down Gomer's Gully. The gully trail was steep, but in pretty good condition. Once you get to the valley floor there are several very wet sections, but you should be able to pick your way through without getting too wet. The trail is somewhat braided in sections, but the side spurs seem to come back to the main trail.
