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!

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!

Backpacked into Snowmass Lake via Snowmass Creek approach on Monday in torrential rain most of the day - great way to spend my first night ever in the backcountry! Hit the summit on late Tuesday morning. Had the route and summit to ourselves, except for one group of three we saw on our descent. Hiked out the same day via Buckskin Pass (as we had cars at both trailheads).

The Gladbach Memorial Day 2010 trip. My first 14er snow climb and first 14er of 2010. I was slower than normal this day. Everyone else who would summit was coming down from the summit when I reached the ridge. I was ready to turn around, but Gladbach convinced me to summit by going back with me. Glad he did!

Took a wrong turn up Pack Trail Pass and traversed over Snowmass Peak and Hagerman. Long, loose, and exhausting. Trip report

Came up from the Snowmass creek trailhead. Hiked to lake on 29th, climbed on 30th. The top 90 feet was a pretty heavy mix of snow/ice and rock. Have to go back and get the summit. Lots of fun with plenty of snow in the snowmass still. Weather was perfect.

Only ten 14ers left! What a beautiful hike and scenic area around the lake. We got pummeled by a storm the night before the climb, very scary lightning.

Started up at 5:05AM with very wet trail conditions from hard rains the night before; up the west face reached summit at 10:44AM with building clouds. Did quick scramble back down with graupel and rain in a few places. Back to TH at 2:23pm just as the hard rain & hail started. My 45th 14'er.........sweet!!
