Join Bearcam as he tries, for the first time ever, the Bierstadt – Bierstadt Linkup. What’s that? The most cutting-edge mountain triathlon this side of Mt. Evans! Behold:
Drive to Mt. Evans, park at Echo Lake. Hike to Bierstadt V10 and send it. Hike out, get on your bike. Ride up Mt. Evans Summit Road (14 miles)! From there, hike the Sawtooth Ridge Traverse (3.5 miles) until the summit of Mt. Bierstadt 14,065′. Hike back. Celebrate, that’s 2 Bierstadts!
Big thanks to Fat Tire for the bike and supporting this film!

I started out with a camera that I purchased with my furlough money from Trail Crew at Rocky Mountain National Park in 2010 and followed around my famous climber friends. I made cult classic bouldering videos and photos for all the classic climber brands and beyond.
In the years since, I have made product films for adidas Outdoor, photoshoots for The North Face, and athlete profile films for Black Diamond. Now with Bearcam Media I still love to make films from climbing trips, but I am also inspired by human-interest stories with a purpose, like the multiple award-winning Craig’s Reaction (2018). I am a Fat Tire Advocate, and ambassador for Five Ten and Black Diamond.
