Came over with Rachael from Neva, descended East Ridge partway and then dropped down grass/talus to Upper Diamond Lake and eventually Diamond Lake and out. Nice Loop
Walked over from Neva as a way to get back to the trailhead after going up Neva's north ridge. Trip report.
Solo day with the Mar dog. Amazing turns down low.
With Neva, 12660, "Skyscraper" & "Quarter to 5".
Climbed the NE ridge, then traversed to Neva. Descended from the Jasper-Neva saddle.
Fun, i had mountain for myself! Happy 4th July!
With such a huge snow year, even in mid-July, this was an amazing snow climb!!

Used as descent from Mount Neva. Descended SE Ridge to Diamond Lakes. There is an interesting sub peak on this ridge worth checking out.
Came over after climbing Neva via the North Ridge.
Climbed the south slopes from Point 12,660 (12,695) and Devil's Thumb Park. The wind had to be near 40 miles an hour near the top of 12,660, but I soldiered on and made it to the top.
After doing the route to Mt Neva from Arapahoe Pass it was an easy stroll to Mt Jasper. The harder part was the downclimb back into the valley.
6/3/07 - Climbed Snow Lion and descended NE ridge. Interesting plane wreckage on the way out.
6/7/08 - Climbed Juliet on Mt. Neva and traversed to Jasper, UN 12660 & Skyscraper.
Did Jasper as part as a long loop hike from Neva to Skyscraper after going up Juliet on Neva. Awesome day!
Climbed the snow lion, and skied the line just to the lookers right of the snow lion.
Climbed the northeast slopes coming from Neva. These two mountains offer great climbing and guarantee an amazing experience.
Came over from Mount Neva. Great little summit. Descended the East Ridge and ended up with a bit of a bushwhach to Diamond Lakes.
Climbed the NE Ridge w/ Gurlyclimber via a slightly different route. Found a moderate snow chute along the north face of the ridge below UN 12047 that provided moderately exhausting passage to the ridge crest. From there it was easy scrambling straight up the ridge (except for one bizarre 5th class move) to the summit. The descent was a different story altogether, descending the icy snowfields of the NE slopes route. Ended up putting on crampons to descend, which I hate doing, but it was the only way to get traction on some sections. Made it to the unnamed lake as a snow squall moved in. Perfect time to be getting below treeline!
I was very impressed with this climb. The recent snow made it interesting, leading to a mix of all kinds of scrambling, from 3rd class rock moves to moderate snow climbing. combined with getting lost on the bushwack in, this route was tons of fun. we descended to the base of neva and then climbed over to arapaho pass to finish with a nice tour of the area.
