Route Climbed: Coal Bank Pass (North Ridge) Date Climbed: July 3, 1993
Climbed with my brother, John Snell (of Durango at the time) and cousin, Gary McDaniel (also of Durango at the time). We found the climb to be really exciting with lots of exposure. Lots of big, loose rocks, but the views of the Twilight range and other mts in the San Juans were amazing.
Route Climbed: From Coal Bank Pass via northeast ridge Date Climbed: 07-07-00
This hike, listed as a Colorado Mountain Club hike, included only the leader, my husband, and I. The wildflowers in the tundra meadows were amazing. We passed a group of Colorado Outward Bound kids on the ridge where they were roping up, this being the first mountain any of them had ever climbed, and were as happy as they when they joined us on the summit.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
