Moogie737On a very windy day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2016


#1 9-05-16 Bad weather the day before chased us off of the ascent to Castle Peak, but today brought deep blue skies, scattered clouds and winds which would have tipped Paul Bunyan over. But we made it anyway. Yankee Boy Basin road (@11,195'), Wrights Lake spur, and you know the rest of the standard route. Up in 3+17. Met many fine people including an 11-year old boy named Lucas who, with his father, joined us on the wind-swept summit. One of my favorite 14ers so far. With Lana. Next time we'll try the southwest ridge from Blue Lakes Pass.

UdinkStandard Route up Lavender Col  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2016


My first 14er! Took the standard route up Lavender Colouir, with plenty of snow still hanging on. I didn't have any traction or ice axe, just hiking shoes and a trekking pole. It was sketchy going up and even more so going down. http://udink.org/2016/07/07/mount-sneffels-and-handies-peak/

Almost got turned back by icy col. Went for it anyway. Safer on decent after sun softened snow. Amazing place. Don't forget your axe.

Followed the standard route up. A slightly tricky move to crawl up into the V slot above Lavender Col, but it is more scary-looking (for me, because I'm chicken) than actually difficult.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 1989


Couldn't have asked for a better day. Had some moist clouds (Yay) to walk thru mid morning but they gave way to just an incredible, multi-colored day. It's one of those you just want to stay up there on a while.
The threesome that cashed it in at Saddleback missed a real treat.

Coming in a 2 wheel drive rental I had to start from the lower trailhead. Hiked up via Blue Lakes Pass and SW ridge. Decent via normal route. Perfect weather and some ok scrambling on the way up. Views from the summit were great, even with a little haze in the distance.

MissHSW Ridge is THE way to go!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2015


Up Class 3 SW Ridge - so much fun. Descended the standard scree and saw the frustration on ascenders' faces. Would repeat this 14er anytime (that ridge was a blast!!) I'm in the Ouray area. Climbed with MoapaPk (Harlan).

PilotTylerRay21st Birthday Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2013


Summited on the 31st of July in 2013. This was as great climb. I loved it. Many people were climbing that day, but very few of them summited. Most people quit at the saddleback below the last couloir.

Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2014


Great day up, meant to climb the SW ridge, took wrong trail and ended up doing normal route but added a little spice to it by gong up a different chute to access some class IV and easy 5th class sections. Completed with two buddies, this was ones first summit on a 14ner

On a rainy day I decided to drive up into Yankee Boy Basin just to have a look. I come to the end of the road way above tree line only to discover that it's only a mile's walk to the summit. The weather is still questionable, but how could I not try? This was the quickest CO 14er so far. Nice summit.

Up the SW ridge from Yankee Boy Basin. Visibility was non-existent when I reached the summit. Still a fun hike, though.

richnycWinter climb: Yankee Boy Basin - Lavender Col route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2014


Nothing beats climbing Colorado's 14ers in Winter. Had a long day due to the winter road closure, so I had to start 4.5 miles lower than the usual summer starting spot at the the "Lower TH". Conditions were ideal, clear skies and windless. Only saw another young couple trying the climb. I did it solo: 15 miles in total, 5250 feet elevation gain, 9 hours roundtrip (5:30hrs to the summit). I started late, at 8:45am, summited at around 2:15pm, left the summit at 2:45pm, back in my car by 5:45pm, 20 mins after sunset. For the most part, the trail was hard packed. It didn't snow here for two weeks;) Only used snowshoes for about an hour. Crampons and ice axe were useful, esp. above Lavender Col. Otherwise, below the Upper TH, I switched to microspikes (lighter than crampons) for faster and safer walking on iced up trail or on the road. Great day!!!
