From Snowmass Creek TH: up southwest ridges, down south rock steps  Sucess!

Was lucky with the weather for this long one after driving in from Denver the evening before after work. Saw a bear early in the morning and a lot of other wildlife. Wild flowers were in full bloom. Big, but great day! 27 miles, ~ 7k ft vert gained

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Fun peak and great scramble. Not too much smoke thankfully. Centennial #97/100

rain and shine  Sucess!

Nice outing, late start since the upper road to Lead King Basin was blocked by fallen trees about 2.5 miles from the Crystal 4WD TH, so I turned around and drove the lower road, stuck in traffic to the little community of Crystal, then road was really rough (hit the bottom a few times with my Toyota FJ cruiser). Rain above Geneva Lake, but cleared up.

SW Ridge up, S face down  Sucess!

Still lots of snow around Geneva Lake and above Trail Rider Pass trail. Cramponed up to the SW ridge, but the ridge itself was dry. I was hoping to glissade or plunge step down the S face route, but by that time, the snow was a bit too soft so I descended a bare rock rib.

Just Hagerman  Sucess!

Camped at Lake Geneva and had it almost all to ourselves, summit the next day and pack and drive out. Snow on top.

Traverse from Snowmass Peak  Sucess!

Whiteout with very light snow created confusion and extra climbing. Hiked in from Snowmass Creek TH, one day push with Snowmass Peak and Snowmass Mountain. Complex mountain with several unexpected ribs. With Goldielocks.

Final Centennial 13er  Sucess!

After climbing 3 centennial 13ers the 3 days prior in the San Juans, this was #100 for me. The creek crossing above Geneva Lake was about 2 feet deep and moving fast. Still a lot of snow on the route. Beautiful area with lots of waterfalls and rugged peaks. I was surprised by how rough the approach road was to Crystal.

southwest ridge  Sucess!

Summit stay was short due to threatening storm. The ridge itself was a fun scramble.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

After Siberia Peak, we scrambled up Hagerman the following day. A good, solid class-3 ridge (southwest ridge) is the best way in reaching the summit. Sticking to the crest yields some great scrambling. Took longer then what I wanted but it was still a good day. Bad weather though. South face sucks...typical loose Elk rock.

South Face, via Lead King Basin  Sucess!

southwest ridge  Sucess!

climbed up the fun, southwest ridge scramble with mike. stuck to the ridge proper most of the way and tackled a bunch of fourth/low fifth-class stuff. nothing took too much time and it was a really fun ascent!

the descent wasn't as enjoyable as mike went gimpy after slipping on a sizeable rock. moving a little slower we carefully made our way down the remaining scree fields before cruising the trail back to camp.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the SW Ridge route with Jamie, the ridge has some loose stuff, but its mostly solid where you are scrambling. The south face, however, is another story. It was loose and not an enjoyable route, had a rock come out from under me and slammed my thigh into another pointy one. Limped out okay, but was really sore. Rain and my bum leg canceled Siberia Peak the next day, but we went up the 11er Arkansas Mtn that was next to our camp site.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

The sw ridge was a surprisingly solid and fun scramble. Highly recommended to the loose south face. Traversed over to Snowmass Peak, which was sketchy and loose.

Twice including winter!  Sucess!

7/15/06 - From camp at Geneva Lake, climbed S-Ridge on Snowmass and traversed the ridge to Hagerman with zero beta. Brought a rope & small amount of pro. Crux was short, crazily exposed 5.3ish step. Other than that it was 3rd & 4th class. Some of the huge rocks are very loose and dangerous. Our party of three had one very close call. This ia a serious route, be cautious.

2/28/16 - Climbed SW Ridge in insanely good conditions (more like May than February), best I have ever seen in Colorado winter! Backpacked from Marble to Geneva Lake, climbed the peak the next day and then hiked out. This would be a very dangerous route in typical winter conditions.

Route Climbed: SW Ridge Date Climbed: September 17, 2005  Sucess!

Backpacked into Geneva lake for a 2 night stay after the long drive from Colorado Springs. We left camp about 6AM and we soon parted as the group was headed to Snowmass mountain while I was headed to Hagerman via the SW ridge. Summited about 11AM after seeing the rest of the group silhouetted on the S-ridge route several times during the climb. I stayed close to the ridge crest for the entire route. Descended the South face route and got back to camp about 3PM.

SW Ridge was a lot of fun. Awesome scenery: best I've seen in Colorado so far! Turned out to be a beautiful (but long) day. Trip Report Here

Route Climbed: south face Date Climbed: August 6, 2005  Sucess!

Second attempt. Climbed it with my brother, Ron. I may write up a trip report later. The panoramic views of the Elks are nothing short of spectacular!
