If accessing Wetterhorn\'s...
If accessing Wetterhorn's standard SE ridge route from the west (i.e., West Fork Cimarron trailhead), you'll need to get to the 12,900' col SW of Wetterhorn, and then traverse to the 13,060' col at the base of the SE Ridge route. Take care not to go too low! The use trail is faint, and your objective (the 13,060' col) is invisible. 8 July 2004.

Nice work. Was my advice from the thread helpful?

Hi Aaron,



Yes it was! Thanks. The problem for us was that a snowstorm started soon after this photo was taken. In the melee, we went a bit too low. Wasn't a big problem, since I realized the mistake and contoured back to the trail, but we were on the verge of going into the wrong creek drainage! Yikes!



We did some hiking and fishing around Sneffels today. Didn't climb it, but went to the highest of the Blue Lakes before getting rained on pretty hard. Caught a 13" Cutthroat in the lowest Blue Lakes.
