Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2007


Started from Maroon Lake, climbed Buckskin BM then down Buckskin Pass and camped at Snowmass Lake. Climbed Snowmass via gully between Snowmass & N. Snowmass. Got both summits and then descended standard route and packed out Snowmass Creek. This was an awesome route!

Don't bother looking for cairns above treeline...just make a beeline for the ridge! Great views from the summit, one of my top 10 14ers!

BEAUTIFUL lake! Worth the 8 mile backpack in. TEDIOUS route finding ("cairns?" WHERE?! They are little... don't waste your time- just shoot for the ridge!). Fun scramble at the end to a great summit block! L-O-N-G 13 mile hike back down and out! Loved the scenery along this route... quite possibly my favorite (of 46 now)!

My favorite climb so far... Climbed the east snowless slopes and watched the sunrise from the summit. This 14er rocks!

shanahan96snowfield and ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


with jamie and mike....climbed the namesake snowfield to the summit ridge around 13,850 feet. the ridge was an unexpected surprise with lots of class three and four terrain to cross before reaching the summit.

can't believe i passed on north snowmass. the glissades, especially the first one(1000+ feet, just flat-out ripped), back towards snowmass lake were really fun!

A long day from the Lead King Basin TH for me and trishapajean. We climbed the left-most gully most of the way, then wrapped around to the north and ended up traversing most of the summit ridge. Spectacular exposure!

chicagotransplantSnow field to ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


Climbed with Shanahan96, Jamie Nellis and Denalibound from Snowmass Lake. Long hike in/out with heavy pack, but this is the route we wanted. What's Snowmass without climbing the namesake snow field? Due to hard snow on the back of the ridge we opted to stay as close to the crest as possible. This resulted in some extra scrambling than normal, and several short class 4 moves at the various gendarmes. Great fun!

Also traversed out to tag "North Snowmass", excellent views of Capitol and Pierre Lakes from the north summit. Its worth the extra 20 minutes!

Hiked in Snowmass Creek route and camped at the lake. Wish it was earlier since there wasn't much snow - that damn talus field is tough in tele boots. Anyway climbed to the ridge and skied from there. Did not fancy climbing the ridge to the summit in tele boots so neglected to summit. Ski was fun though. Long hike out with 50lb pack.

TalusMonkey, Greg, and I camped above Lake Geneva, traversed over to the trail and went up the west slopes route. Steep talus and amazing lakes on the way up.

TiogaBradfordWhat a day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2005


Incredible day! This was my 2nd 14er and my first Class 3 peak. We started hiking that day at about 2am, made it to the lake by sunrise, and summitted around 10am. I think we finished hiking that day around 5pm, after about 15 hours and 20 miles. My friend Dave and I were dead exhausted.

The scenery and scrambling were great, but the scree field was less than fun....

Would rather have had snow to ski/glissade down. Weather stayed nice all day, just cloudy enough.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2006


The most technical climb thus far, and physically demanding. I had heard of the Elk Range being rather rugged and remote, but I had no idea. The entire hike to base camp was gorgeous, filled with marmots and columbines. Lake is suberb, and fishing was great!
