Climbed the southeast ridge from Paradise Divide with Rachael, Kevin and Sarah. Early morning rain on the hike to Yule Pass finally stopped, but the summit hung out in the clouds and we did not get to enjoy the views.
With Megan and Katie, both 12. Found access to the E side of Yule Ck rather tricky; ended up going through a rather unfriendly Christian Camp site. Couldn't then find the Skyline mine road and ended up bush-whacking up the side of the ridge, via various interesting old mine diggings. A relief to the get to the ridge, and its wonderful views into the Snowmass-Capitol massif. Descent simpler: picked up the old mine road.
SE Ridge from Paradise Divide Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2008
Hiked from Paradise Divide (2 miles south of Schofield Pass). First climbed Cinnamon & Treasury, then dropped 1000+ ft down Treasury's SW slopes and climbed back up to Treasure's SE ridge. Returned over Yule Pass. Great fall hike.
