Date Climbed: May 21, 2012


Went up the Eastern route. Snow was soft and post holing was the name of the game by 8:00am! Turned back at ridge because of lousy snow conditions. Husband sunk up to above his waist, rolled over, whole body started going in with no hard snow in reach. Beautiful place though! Absolutely great!

Climbed this peak with Dustin Kelley. There was quite a bit of snow on the Peak and used Ice Axe and crampons once we hit boulder field. Difficult day climb. Great weather.

Hiked in to Snowmass Lake on the day before and climbed Snowmass via the East slopes on the "famous" snowfield... the famous snowfield that was barely there and where it was (above 12,500 feet) it was all deep powder and the entire climb was an awful posthole. Five hours later though I made it!

Rained off. Snowed off. Finally finished it as the 14er finisher just as the leaves are turning.

This loop made me question my sanity. Goldielocks and I planned a marathon length loop from Snowmass Creek TH: get to Trail Rider pass, then climb Snowmass Peak, then traverse the entire ridge across Hagerman, Snowmass Mountain, and Capitol. Then drop down the Capitol ridge (direct of course) and loop all the way back to TH. Oh yeah, in one day. We made it to Snowmass Mt in total whiteout (finally) and quit. Slog out of there was disgusting. Still almost a marathon. Snowmass is my least favorite mountain in the world. I might retire because of it.

Nothing like hiking 2 miles in the wrong direction at 1 am...probably more fun than falling into a bog or slogging through the lake though. Rest up, sista!

Climbed 'S' Ridge on a day trip from Crystal TH. Descended the same way. Nice route with plenty of solid rock if you stay on the ridge crest. Beautiful weather, great views!

noahs213Completion of the Snow Cap Traverse  Sucess!


Topped out late in the day to finally finish the ridge traverse from Capitol.

Looks like me, Mike, and Steve made the first ascent of the ridge proper. Hard to know in CO with unrecorded data. Encountered dangerous-very dangerous climbing most of the way. Especially the Gendarmes. Not much pro and if you do get a piece it's not something you want to fall on. On top of that, it's choss with massive exposure and I mean the worse choss you can imagine. Glad we all came out unhurt. One of the most rewarding experiences though at the same time!!!! This thing is absolutely no joke. A test piece for sure!

Was stupid and went up the east face with my dog. Snow was MUCH steeper than it looked and it got soft quick. Very fortunate to get a belay from above. Lesson learned!
