Fun climb with my two dogs! I had to climb a steep coulior to the left because the standard routes final 2+ move was not good for my large dogs!
Very fun class 3 climb. Descended the standard route back to Yankee Boy.
Strange having trucks full of people go by that high but a beautiful hike.
Rain/Hail from the previous night had washed out the access road & added 2 miles to the hike. I was "tricked" into following the Southwest Ridge instead of the standard route & turned back at about 13500ft due to noon-hour thunder/lightening storm
sneffels was an easy second climb, great for beginners, and it has an extraordinary north face. just a sheer drop.
For the most part, a fun hike. I didn't care much for the Scree Col though, but did enjoy the trough from the saddle to the summit. Great views from the summit!!
This is the highest mountain i've hiked and thus far my last 14er. The view was increadible.
