Driving up Yankee Boy Basin, we were stopped by a number of emergency vehicles ahead on the shelf road. At first, we thought it was search and rescue; then the coroner's vehicle pulled up behind. My understanding is that it was a fireworks-related incident from the night before, where a young man was running to get away from a lit fuse and fell off the shelf. As for the hike, we had large group that then split into three groups. I took the younger kids and we safely made it to about 13,400 ft.

Beautiful drive up, nice wildflowers at the beginning of the hike. Great views from the top, especially of the Blue Lakes. Somewhat annoying scree climb, but overall awesome 14er.

The intention was to do the Snake, but we settled on the east slopes, joining the standard route at Lavender Col. Blaine Basin is an amazing place to visit.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2010


of the birthday (south) chutes. Due to our desire to get off the summit quickly due to high winds, the upper part of the ski descent was still scary frozen mini-suncups, but the snow was soft lower down.

Camped in Yankee Boy Basin. Did an unknown couloir on a whim, scrambled the south ridge, and survived.

One of the prettiest areas I've been to in Colorado. The 12 & 13ers surrounding you are awesome.

Darren9Snake was the right choice  Sucess!


Got spanked on the N. Face a year earlier, had to come back and climb ice to get this one done! A great route, but a little loose at the top.

Parked at the 4WD parking and it was a very easy climb. Only took an hour to reach the summit.

beautiful mountain. 25ft. of hard ass snow made the top of the exit couloir a little hairy with my big ass camera/tripod.

Rocky AlpsSouthwest Ridge / Lavender Col Loop  Sucess!

Rocky Alps

I'd been looking forward to climbing another 14er after a four year hiatus, and Mount Sneffels was my first choice. It was the first big mountain my younger brothers Chris and Johnny have climbed, and they did quite well considering it was their first time scrambling as well. The rocks were a bit loose on the lower sections of the southwest ridge, but the final few hundred yards were really solid and a blast to climb on. The views from the summit were among the best I've seen. Despite not going though Blue Lakes Basin (which I've heard has some great scenery), Yankee Boy Basin was still quite nice as well. I wussed out and didn't park all the way at the top of the 4WD road, but the hike back down was still quite enjoyable. See "Long-Awaited Return to Colorado" trip report for details.

One of the most interesting routes on a peak I have had the pleasure to ascend. It was a little exhilarating coming down through the v-notch. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.
