This is a challenging but rewarding option to summit Bierstadt. The boulder field on the Bierstadt approach has big drops and it took a few of us shorter folks helped by a hand holder from below to provide a foot hold to avoid a large drop to get down occasionally. The return trip was a steep climb out. By the end a real sense of accomplishment. Not for beginners.
