As described in Gerry Roach's Colorado Fourtneer's book, this route begins at the first switchback toward the top of Mt evans, which lies in the saddle between mt Evans and Epaulet Mountain. It descends into the basin below and gains Mt Bierstadt's east ridge. It follows this ridge to the summit of Mt Bierstadt and then follows the sawtooth ridge between Mt Evans and Mt Bierstadt. Summit Mt Evans and then back to the car. This route contains all of the fun ridge scrambling with none of the boring, long approaches to these two, generally easy, Colorado 14ers.
