There is a fair amount of snow higher up on Bierstadt. Snowshoes are not necessary, but micro-spikes or other traction devices are very helpful. The lower part of the standard route was a bit muddy, but nothing too bad. Summited at 8:30am and the weather was beautiful and winds were calm. The winds seemed to pick up a little as I was descending.

Were you the couple that I took your picture early morning? If so, it was nice to meet you. Were you able to summit?
