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


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...


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.

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.

big_ggreat easy winter summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2008


Just last month I turned around at Point 13,152 because I didn't want to find out how much worse it could get. This Sunday was no stroll in the park but it was at least reasonable and much more pleasant than the ski traffic back to Denver.

bblack99First 13er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2007


A surprisingly steep first pitch and a 24-hour elevation change of over 12,000ft made this a memorable first 13er! Wonderful weather, sweeping summit views, and a fantastic sunrise over Pt. 12,915 didn't hurt either.

The wife and I did this as a quick trip just to get out for the afternoon. Started late but the weather held off on this bluebird day.

I climbed this several times....Well if you consider from Loveland Pass as climbing it??????????? But I do enjoy using this route as a great warm up and keeping in shape. I average 3 times a year with this super easy route

Jon Nelson and I hiked Sniktau from the pass. The weather was great- the big rainstorm from the night before left plenty of fog in it's wake, so we had a nice break from the sun. Looking southeast at the lake 1000 feet below was quite a sight. Nice mellow warmup hike though the next hike won't be- Mount Powell.

Quick little recovery hike today. Did Sniktau from Loveland in about 45 min, then traversed over to Grizzly and ran back to Loveland. A little under 3 hours round trip. Storms were moving in early today... thunder by 11am.

Some of my friends were skiing with the masses at A-Basin, I decided to solo this 13er instead and lose the crowds.

Hour and a half drive from Denver, took 2 hours to reach the summit and 1 hour to descend back to Loveland Pass. An awesome short hike.
