The starting crimps for Bierstadt Loh are visible ...

The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


A low sit start to 4-star Bierstadt that begins below the jug on poor starting holds and moves into the regular line, adding a couple extra moves to a problem that doesn't really need them. Bierstadt is a better problem, since it begins matched on an OBVIOUS starting jug, but the low sit start can be worth doing if you're in the area with nothing better to do and it's in your price range.

Since Greg Loh did not name this problem and people have been calling it lots of things (Bierstadt Low, Bierstadt SDS, Bierstadt Sit, etc.), in an effort to eliminate confusion I thought Bierstadt Loh was an appropriate and respectful moniker.


A sit start to the obvious and well-chalked line on the right side of the Bierstadt Corridor just before the A-frame you walk under as you enter Area A proper. Find poor starting below the right-facing jug and you've got it.


A couple Organic pads and maybe a spotter/pad-mover to cushion the blow as you work out the nuances.
