Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011


Late start but successful. Lavender col was very icy and deep with snow still. Microspikes were much needed throughout the lavender col and snake colour. Storm clouds at the summit meant no time for relaxation and headed back down within 5 minutes. A must do if you are in the area and up to the task!

Climbed the crappy talus of the standard route and was hit in the ankle by a rock dislodged from above by a kid in sneakers. Just a bruise. Wear a helmet on this route! This is one of those climbs that can take almost as long going down as going up. Be careful.

Climbed from Yankee Boy Basin. The view from the top was stunning. I would recommend this peak to any experienced climber.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2011


Climbed the standard route from the lower Yankee Boy TH with my buddy Danny. No snow present. Lots of people, including an unprepared football team we had to give water to. There was a glider doing close passes while we were on the summit. Also climbed the small peak to the east, Danny doing some 5th class on it for fun.

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!

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

belexesYankee Boy Basin/Lavender Col  Sucess!
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.
