Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


Attempted the east face but got turned back by some extremely rotten rock I wasn't expecting. Well, more appropriately, wasn't prepared for. I should have been expecting it.

I would love to write about how much I enjoyed his ascent, but without snow, the North Couloir is just absurd! Steep, loose misery. Really enjoyed he summit ridge, though, and the views from the summit are outstanding. In particular, Sneffels and Dallas were incredible!

ski via northwest ridge with Michael Covington. The ridge was free of snow, only the couloir had tons of snow. Did not need crampons - the snow was soft, but it was pretty steep, at least 45 degrees.

chicagotransplantNW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009


NW Ridge with Prakash, Jamie and Jon. The ridge was easy, but getting there involved some nasty loose scree/talus. There is a useful climbers trail through parts of it though, definitely worth locating! Also went up Sneffels later in the day.

dakotaconcreteNorthwest Ridge Route
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2009


Began our trip from nearly 11,000ft. Overtaking blue lakes pass proved extrememly difficult due to its large corniced eastern flank. Turned around atop the pass after seeing several more very large cornices blocking our path via the main ridge to reach to the summit. All in all, disappointing but made for a great morning in a beautiful location.

SarahThompsonFrom Yankee Boy Basin  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2006


Started at the famous toilet in Yankee Boy Basin after an early fall snowstorm. Climbed up a horribly loose scree slope covered with a bunch of new snow (a total nightmare) to gain the NW ridge. Easy from there to the summit. Incredibly beautiful views, especially with the new blanket of snow. Also climbed Cirque Mountain before heading back. Kept in touch with my friend via radio as she climbed Sneffels - kind of fun.

I climbed Gilpin with Erin on a beautiful morning in the Sneffels Range. I'm glad we picked a short climb because the thunderstorms were ready to start before noon. The scree was a pain at times, but it wasn't that bad. The wildflowers were absolutely brilliant! A trip report is available here.
