Nice Snow Climb  Sucess!

It was a nice easy snow climb. My only chance to use my crampons on my June 2011 trip to Colorado.

Yankee Boy Basin/Lavender Col  Sucess!

I climbed Sneffels with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert, and his partner, Patrick. Robert and I had summited the Wetterhorn the day before. We parked at the lower trailhead (with the outhouse). There was still a fair amount of snow higher up: Ice axe and crampons were necessary. We reached the top just before 10AM. There was almost no wind at the summit, but the clouds were building swiftly. There was a guy in jeans and a button up shirt at the V slot when we were coming down. I was able to do a few glissades on the descent. It hailed and rained on us a few times when we got back down into the basin. There we a lot of ATVs on the road this day.

Dogleg  Sucess!

Ajpproached Yankee Boy, summitted & "skied" the Dogleg. Mostly shuffled through the choke, but what the hey!

Fantastic snow. Take 60M of rope with you.

Great snow climb  Sucess!

From 11,400 in Yankee Boy Basin I climbed on continuous consolidated snow and in only 2 hours. Crampons very helpful. Beautiful sunrise in the basin.

Snow climb without crampons  Sucess!

From 11,350' trailhead in Yankee Boy Basin, started at 6 am and was first to summit! Lots of snow but my MSR Lightning Ascents made it work in view of the fact that I was the only person up there without crampons that day.

Great attempt!

Came up from Blaine Basin went down via Blue Lakes. The notch was way too sketchy for me with the cornices and snow but I enjoyed my time atop the couloir. :) I wanted a snow climb and I certainly got one!!

From Yankee Boy Basin  Sucess!

Climbed with my Father. I can only "imagine" the view as we were lucky to see our feet in the fog/cloud? This one bears repeating!

South Ridge from Blue Lakes  Sucess!

Packed and camped at lowest Blue Lake. An excellent day gave way to a bit of snow while I was on the ridge which made going a little slick. Sneffels has an incredibly rewarding summit.

4x including a winter ascent  Sucess!

7/15/04 - Standard route with my little brother who was visiting from sea level. He felt very sick partyway up to Lavender Col so I finished it off solo.

5/27/07 - Awesome ascent of the Snake Couloir. Descended back into Blaine Basin from Lavendar Col via a great glissade.

7/13/09 - Standard route with my husband, father, brother and father-in-law 2 days after my wedding in Yankee Boy Basin. Special climb.

3/14/11 - Just can't get enough of this mountain. Did a winter ascent of the standard route in near perfect snow conditions. Incredible day, a gift from the mountain gods.

Class 2 gully  Sucess!

Snow dusting surrounding peaks, fall color, and one of the most insane forest roads I've ever encountered. 4x4 is the most sane option when driving.
