The Sawtooth is a great traverse between two Colorado 14ers. It can be done in either direction, but most people start by climbing Bierstadt first. The ridge is obvious, but there are numerous possibilities for variation. If you stay on route, you can keep the difficulties at class 3, but it is very easy to find yourself pulling class 5 moves if you get off route.
To get to Mt. Bierstadt, take the Georgetown exit off I-70. Drive through Georgetown, follow signs for Guanella Pass Scenic Byway. Drive 12 miles to the top of Guanella Pass. There are parking lots on both sides of the road. The upper one has restrooms, the trail starts at the lower lot. Give yourself extra time for driving this road. It is dirt, and unless it has just been scraped, the washboard will loosen your fillings.
