This was my second climb of Sneffels. There was still snow in the upper couloir on the standard route. We encountered a family who were in over their heads. I got to physically assist one of them back down the snow.

Wasn't prepared for the still heavy snowpack in early July. Without crampons/axe didn't want to attempt the last steep gully climb coming from Yankee Boy Basin.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2007


7/30/10- repeated the SW ridge w/aaron and the davis guys after having this sneffels idea popped on me just before leaving for vacation. what a fun, unexpected way to start a trip!

8/31/07- climbed the much easier than expected southwest ridge with jamie, mike and kiefer. it was a nice, short day to kick off a three-day labor day climbing weekend!

tried kismet, but clouds began to loom so we high-tailed back into yankee boy basin.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2007


Was extremely surprised at how short this ridge actually was. Nice summit but a little disappointing. Was expecting, I don't know, more of a challenge?
Good day out though. Yankee Boy Basin is stunning!
Scrambled with Shanahan96, JamieNellis and Aaron Ihinger.

The South Ridge is great. Had great weather, and was able to spend about a hour on the summit. Great mountain!

Summited via the South Ridge route, came down the Lavender Coulior. Great climb, one of my favorites. Awesome views from the top to the north, and back across the San Juans.

This was the first 14'er I ever tried, not really knowing what I was getting into yet. I did not succeed the first time. The second time I went with snow in the couloir and thought it was a lot easier!

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2007


WOW- what FUN sustained class 3 climbing! A beautiful day for my 42nd 14er summit:-) We loop hiked and came down the standard route... Only negative: I was shocked at the number of people going down the gully without helmets on (it seemed that the parking lot of people kicked down a rock every 2 minutes)!

Great follow-up to the SP Gathering in the San Juans. I enjoyed a second day with kilimanjaro1, vanny37, chicagotransplant and kane. I can see why Aaron says this is his favorite CO 14er. Beautiful mountain and fun climb, especially the snow and scramble at the top.

Climbed with chicagotransplant and Kane. Great ridge route. The main gully to the ridge had some soft snow that required a few harder moves than most likely would be required with the gully dry. Top portion of the climb is stellar. Descended standard route.
