apachedinoTour de Sneffels  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2011


Started @ Dallas Creek, up Blue lakes and South Ridge, down standard route to saddle and then down the gorgious Blaine Basin. Very good route for this excellent peak. Don't be a wuss and drive up, you take away from the experience.

Bluebird day, no one else around. Just a little snow- not enough to warrant crampons. My axe came in handy for snow in the V notch, though. This was a quick climb.

I wish the San Juan range was a lot closer to home.

MarkDidierSouthwest Ridge from Blue Lakes Basin  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2011


Climbed as part of a 2 night backpack into Blue Lakes Basin. Ascended SW ridge, descended Lavender Col.

Southwest ridge route was fun. Route finding in the pinnacles and gullies was challenging but we found our way relatively easy. The route is fairly well cairned but I wouldn't go in relying on them! Climbed on a Thursday and didn't see anyone until we were ready to start the descent of Lavender Col.

Among the more accessible 14ers. 4hrs round trip via Lavendar even after finishing the Wilson group 2 days before. Steep. Flies on top. But a lawn chair and book is dooable. The summit is perched high above the rest of the range.

Great day out in an amazingly beautiful area! I was surprised by how easy and straightforward the standard route was and would love to go back to explore it's many other routes.

Finally got my 21st 14er! Cool summit, but it was wayy crowded. Also, the talus and scree is annoying. The views along the route and at the top are some of the best views from any 14er! We flew a kite from the saddle around 13800ft. Great day with great weather!

Fun little ridge scramble. Much more appealing than the standard gully with much better views. Great day with my wife!

It was a nice easy snow climb. My only chance to use my crampons on my June 2011 trip to Colorado.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2011


I climbed Sneffels with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert, and his partner, Patrick. Robert and I had summited the Wetterhorn the day before. We parked at the lower trailhead (with the outhouse). There was still a fair amount of snow higher up: Ice axe and crampons were necessary. We reached the top just before 10AM. There was almost no wind at the summit, but the clouds were building swiftly. There was a guy in jeans and a button up shirt at the V slot when we were coming down. I was able to do a few glissades on the descent. It hailed and rained on us a few times when we got back down into the basin. There we a lot of ATVs on the road this day.

From 11,400 in Yankee Boy Basin I climbed on continuous consolidated snow and in only 2 hours. Crampons very helpful. Beautiful sunrise in the basin.

rockymountaindivaSnow climb without crampons  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011


From 11,350' trailhead in Yankee Boy Basin, started at 6 am and was first to summit! Lots of snow but my MSR Lightning Ascents made it work in view of the fact that I was the only person up there without crampons that day.

LadyWawaGreat attempt!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2011


Came up from Blaine Basin went down via Blue Lakes. The notch was way too sketchy for me with the cornices and snow but I enjoyed my time atop the couloir. :) I wanted a snow climb and I certainly got one!!

Climbed with my Father. I can only "imagine" the view as we were lucky to see our feet in the fog/cloud? This one bears repeating!

Packed and camped at lowest Blue Lake. An excellent day gave way to a bit of snow while I was on the ridge which made going a little slick. Sneffels has an incredibly rewarding summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2004


7/15/04 - Standard route with my little brother who was visiting from sea level. He felt very sick partyway up to Lavender Col so I finished it off solo.

5/27/07 - Awesome ascent of the Snake Couloir. Descended back into Blaine Basin from Lavendar Col via a great glissade.

7/13/09 - Standard route with my husband, father, brother and father-in-law 2 days after my wedding in Yankee Boy Basin. Special climb.

3/14/11 - Just can't get enough of this mountain. Did a winter ascent of the standard route in near perfect snow conditions. Incredible day, a gift from the mountain gods.
