Climbed as part of a long loop of East Snowmass Creek drainage. Started at the Ditch Trail in Snowmass Village, went up Willoughby and then traversed the ridge via PT 13020, PT 13336, PT 13244 and Baldy then descended the ski slopes back to the Ditch Trail and the car. The ridge from PT 13336 to PT 13244 was tough, lots of loose stuff and lots of routefinding difficulties, if the rock was better it would be a classic though.
NW Face from E Snowmass Creek Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2007
Spur of the moment route decision, zero beta. Moderate to steep snow climb. Snow wasn't exactly as consolidated as we would have liked. Traversed ridge to UN 13020 & then Willoughby. Super long day in spring conditions! We started in the dark and ended after 9pm!
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
