HalikuSouthwest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2009

Haliku

Rush and I got in a last climb before leaving for our Denali trip. High winds, blowing snow and low to zero vis was the name of the game on the upper half of the route.

Rkymtn and I had an enjoyable outing on what was a easy climb in all aspects but the wind. The surrounding view is great.

This hike was part of my belated 30th birthday celebration trip. I skied at A Basin on Friday, then hiked Sniktau on Saturday. I ate my only birthday cake this year, a Hostess cupcake, on the summit in the freezing wind. I would have liked to have gotten Grizzly as well, but that will have to wait for another trip....I had ski traffic to beat down to Denver!

I can't believe the weather we had today. Bluebird skies, just amazing. Granted, it was plenty cold and, of course, insanely breezy en route to Sniktau. But, all in all, the weather was fabulous. Hiking partner: Jill.

Very cold and windy, not much snow, the East side has some very steep looking terrain and a fragile looking cornice.

Easy hike up to the summit, though the false summit was kind of a drag, then headed on over to Cupid.

JassenBFirst 13er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008
My first 13er. Probably a great starter mountain and trainer. It kicked my butt, especially on the way down, but this is exactly what I was looking for on my path to getting in better shape and training for some 14ers.

Have climbed this route a few times. A nice peak with a super close approach. Best when deserted. (off season)

SarahThompsonMemorable hike due to tailbone injury!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2006

SarahThompson

This a great, short hike for getting into the winter summit game. I'll never forget my trip. My partner returned to the car after about 20 minutes because it was so cold and windy. I pressed on alone. When I got to the summit I really had to pee and had no choice but to drop my drawers in the bitter cold. The wind knocked me over in the process and I bruised my tailbone pretty badly. I think my butt was frozen though because I didn't feel it until after the hike! I still laugh when I think about it.

astrobassmanOne of my favorite places to train...

astrobassman

Great place to when you only have an hour or two to get away...or to get a quick workout in before heading down to A-basin.

Good, safe winter climb after two days of hard snow in the mountains kept me from hitting my original targets.

This was my 8th time climbing Sniktau. Many of those were in the winter. Access is easy from Loveland Pass. The dependable wind usually keeps much of the snow blown from the easy ridge.

This was my first time climbing Sniktau. Easy year round access has been the reason for repeats.
