KieferSW Ridge  Sucess!
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)!

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


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.

vanny37Southwest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


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.

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.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2006


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)

FlexSnake Couloir May/01  Sucess!


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.

Vagabond Manifesto

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.
