#40, Ouray lunch followed by a Sneffels summit  Sucess!

TMI trailhead data (2WD, lower/upper 4WD, really?) ...basically add 2 miles if your in a Nissan Sentra rental. Started at 2:30pm, "the new 6am" after a leisurely lunch at Maggies in Ouray. A 6hr climb up the solid rock SW ridge with a NE couloir class 3 variation. Gaining 3,560' in 5.8 miles made this my 40th CO14er to summit. Cheers!

Wish I had my jeep...  Sucess!

In POS rental, so had to start at @10.7K ft, below the lower TH. We didn't really mind, but hiking up that road for a couple of miles is not that enjoyable. Wishing I had my jeep in Texas while watching all these guys have fun cruising up to the upper TH! We did ok on time though - 3:15 up, and that was taking our time. Fun climb, but if you want more true scrambling, maybe the ridge will provide it.

#20  Sucess!

Made for a nice rest day ;) Quick route with standout views in the Switzerland of America. I spent 2 hours organizing the registry box so I hope its less like a stuffed up trash can if you see it now :)

Good times on Snefelofogus  Sucess!

Kieva, Sean and I climbed the standard route, snow towards top of lavender couloir, manageable with microspikes. The route is full of loose rock so descent not so fun.

from Yankee Boy  Sucess!

Shorter hike than I thought. Didn't get started until about 10am. Pretty darn windy out

On a very windy day  Sucess!

#1 9-05-16 Bad weather the day before chased us off of the ascent to Castle Peak, but today brought deep blue skies, scattered clouds and winds which would have tipped Paul Bunyan over. But we made it anyway. Yankee Boy Basin road (@11,195'), Wrights Lake spur, and you know the rest of the standard route. Up in 3+17. Met many fine people including an 11-year old boy named Lucas who, with his father, joined us on the wind-swept summit. One of my favorite 14ers so far. With Lana. Next time we'll try the southwest ridge from Blue Lakes Pass.

Standard Route up Lavender Col  Sucess!

My first 14er! Took the standard route up Lavender Colouir, with plenty of snow still hanging on. I didn't have any traction or ice axe, just hiking shoes and a trekking pole. It was sketchy going up and even more so going down. http://udink.org/2016/07/07/mount-sneffels-and-handies-peak/

Lavender col  Sucess!

Almost got turned back by icy col. Went for it anyway. Safer on decent after sun softened snow. Amazing place. Don't forget your axe.

Lavender Col  Sucess!

Followed the standard route up. A slightly tricky move to crawl up into the V slot above Lavender Col, but it is more scary-looking (for me, because I'm chicken) than actually difficult.

Beautiful Autumn  Sucess!

Couldn't have asked for a better day. Had some moist clouds (Yay) to walk thru mid morning but they gave way to just an incredible, multi-colored day. It's one of those you just want to stay up there on a while.
The threesome that cashed it in at Saddleback missed a real treat.

Great mountain  Sucess!

Coming in a 2 wheel drive rental I had to start from the lower trailhead. Hiked up via Blue Lakes Pass and SW ridge. Decent via normal route. Perfect weather and some ok scrambling on the way up. Views from the summit were great, even with a little haze in the distance.
