An easy & fun scramble. Took me two and a half hours from the parking area @ 10700ft to reach the summit. A small wildfire was burning outside of the Montrose area but the smoke was far away. A GREAT climb!

A Pika on Blue Lakes pass tugged on a friend's shirt while she sat. "Snacks? You got snacks?"

Gerry Roach says the South Ridge is less difficult than it looks. Egad - he must think it looks awfully difficult. =) Anyway, the level of snow and crumbliness of rock made for a hair-raising, bona-fide adventure.

The scramble up the S ridge was great - it's all route finding. The summit was loaded with climbers when we reached the top. They'd all taken the "easy" way up and wondered where we'd come from. I don't think they were very impressed when we told them.

I tried to 4WD across Engineer Pass into Ouray but was blocked by an 8 foot snow drift so I had to drive 140 miles back to Montrose and bagged a hotel. I made it to the Yankee Boy Trailhead around 8 the next morning and ended up going with a guy I met there. The Scree Col was filled with snow from an early season dump that happened a couple of days prior. It was a totally fun climb and we were both left with “perm-a-grin” afterward.

Tons of snow this year, so the couloir was still full of it even at this late date. I drove my 1976 Volvo 244 up to the parking lot at 10,700 feet. Not sure how I did that.

Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2005

actually descended the snake couloir. climbed the couloir around the ridge to the west of the snake. this couloir is located on the opposite side of the ridge that is to the southeast of blue lakes basin and southwest of the blaine basin. this route may be the north face couloir. the change of plans came when we saw the mammoth cornice with long icicles hanging off of it making it look like the jaws of death at the dogleg in the snake couloir (see my photo on the sneffels page). This change of plans may have been safer but resulted in a much longer approach. Due to the longer approach, we ended up above the cornice at 2pm rather than the more ideal 10am. don't ask me where the four hours went. We rapped off the cornice (40ft) in hopes of gaining the summit. Once we were in the snow below the monster cornice, conditions were poor, the snow was wet and deep, the sun was glaring down at us from above, postholing 2feet deep per step with just a few hundred feet to go...we felt saving Sneffel's for next year was a good plan and we headed off to the annual toe-tappin', foot stompin' Bluegrass Festival. We'll be back.

This climb was during my honeymoon. Crampons would have been nice for the couloir ascent in the morning, as the snow was quite consolidated and slick. However, it softened with the sun prior to our descent. The weather was great and the views were even better!

This route went much quicker that I had expected. The notch out of the upper coulior was missed on the ascent, and it get's a bit tricky if you try to improvise. Truly a great scenic hike, though.

Very beautiful on the way up with all the wildflowers! The rock is a little loose, but it is well worth the journey!

Great scramble. The spires on the way are pretty amazing (and yes, many of them have routes). Easy day out.

My first 14er with my wife as a married couple! Somewhere around #46 overall I think ... one of my favorite Colorado adventures yet.
