chicagotransplantSW Ridge ascent, standard route descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


SP Gathering "epilogue" peak. Kane, Vanny37 and I headed up the ridge while kilimanjaro1 and jeffrawn headed up the Lavender Col route. Still some snow and ice in gullies used to gain the ridge crest. 3rd class mud, wet rock, loose rock and a few 4th class moves will also be required until it fully melts out. The ridge crest itself is great though!

Also still snow on the upper gully on the standard route (which we descended).

Awesome early morning snow climb for the whole way up. I wouldn't have climbed it any other way. The views were beautiful as well.

Beautiful day for a hike, even though the snow clouds moved in on us about 2/3 up. We enjoyed the hike anyway. Peak was socked in when we got there, so didn't get to see the view, but hope to go back just for that. Sun was out and shining bright again, about 2/3 down. It's amazing how that works. :o)

Started from Yankee Boy Basin, nearly summited via the standard route, dropped down to the N Face and up the Snake Couloir for a great tour de Sneffles. A beautiful peak.

Remains my favorite 14ers. Spectacular to look at from the north. Yankee Boy has incredible flowers. The peak has some scrambling and great views into the San Juans

Nothin' like a little bluegrass fest in telluride and then some fun in the mountains. we did some scrambling up the ridge with mostly rock, and some snow, from blue lakes. It took longer to walk down the standard route, that way is thin slippery scree, and I think that the steeper way we came up would be better for the descent as well. great view of surrounding mountains from the top.

Climbed with a friend via Lavender Col. Snow and ice in the couloir made this more difficult--the escape notch near the top of the gully was covered in ice. Lots of fun. Beautiful sunrise in Yankee Boy Basin.

pjenson05Easy Standard Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2006


Easier than I thought. It was only tough through the initial gulley. 4 Hours round trip with a good break on the summit. We were in the clouds on top.

Fun route, though descending the Scree Col was a pain.

For a change I think I surprised my husband with my willingness to scramble. Maybe I'm just too dumb to be scared.
