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!!!

My first 14er. Fun scrambling, especially near the top (there was a crux)

Wouldnt mind doing it again earlier in the year as a snow climb.

Thanks to the Rubicon this was a short approach to a nice, sustained scramble. A lot of folks not wearing helmets on this route, pretty crazy considering all the loose rock. Great rest day sandwiched in between more demanding objectives! Cooperative weather, too. Beer and burgers at Outay Brewery followed by Wiesbaden hot springs and vapor caves. Total bliss, life is good!

Yankee Boy Basin was cool and the drive was interesting. Can't say much about the view from the summit because we were completely socked in with clouds!

Climbed Lavender Col and the couloir above through the V notch. Some snow in the couloir - my ice axe was helpful.

ajberryTraverse: Blue Lakes up, Blaine Basin down.  Sucess!

The Blue Lakes/Blaine Basin Sneffels traverse made for an excellent day. Recommended. Descent in to Blaine Basin from Lavender Col was straight forward: scree run followed by an extensive boulder-hopping segment. Easy enough to pick up the Blaine Basin trail at around tree line.

This is one of my favorite mountains. It's a monarch on it's own range in San Juan Mountains, A great trip, ascended the Lavender Culoir and dislocated my shoulder in the V-Notch. The colors are awesome, really beautiful place.
