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.

SW Ridge is THE way to go!  Sucess!

Up Class 3 SW Ridge - so much fun. Descended the standard scree and saw the frustration on ascenders' faces. Would repeat this 14er anytime (that ridge was a blast!!) I'm in the Ouray area. Climbed with MoapaPk (Harlan).

21st Birthday Climb  Sucess!

Summited on the 31st of July in 2013. This was as great climb. I loved it. Many people were climbing that day, but very few of them summited. Most people quit at the saddleback below the last couloir.

fun day  Sucess!

Great day up, meant to climb the SW ridge, took wrong trail and ended up doing normal route but added a little spice to it by gong up a different chute to access some class IV and easy 5th class sections. Completed with two buddies, this was ones first summit on a 14ner

Lavender Col  Sucess!

On a rainy day I decided to drive up into Yankee Boy Basin just to have a look. I come to the end of the road way above tree line only to discover that it's only a mile's walk to the summit. The weather is still questionable, but how could I not try? This was the quickest CO 14er so far. Nice summit.

Sneffels  Sucess!

Up the SW ridge from Yankee Boy Basin. Visibility was non-existent when I reached the summit. Still a fun hike, though.

Sneffels SW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with my soon to be wife. Climbed the SW ridge and descended via lavender col. Two weeks before my wedding . Thought she was going to kill me.

Winter climb: Yankee Boy Basin - Lavender Col route  Sucess!

Nothing beats climbing Colorado's 14ers in Winter. Had a long day due to the winter road closure, so I had to start 4.5 miles lower than the usual summer starting spot at the the "Lower TH". Conditions were ideal, clear skies and windless. Only saw another young couple trying the climb. I did it solo: 15 miles in total, 5250 feet elevation gain, 9 hours roundtrip (5:30hrs to the summit). I started late, at 8:45am, summited at around 2:15pm, left the summit at 2:45pm, back in my car by 5:45pm, 20 mins after sunset. For the most part, the trail was hard packed. It didn't snow here for two weeks;) Only used snowshoes for about an hour. Crampons and ice axe were useful, esp. above Lavender Col. Otherwise, below the Upper TH, I switched to microspikes (lighter than crampons) for faster and safer walking on iced up trail or on the road. Great day!!!

Early summer climb   Sucess!

My first 14er. Fun scrambling, especially near the top (there was a crux)

Wouldnt mind doing it again earlier in the year as a snow climb.

Southwest Ridge from Yankee Boy Basin  Sucess!

Thanks to the Rubicon this was a short approach to a nice, sustained scramble. A lot of folks not wearing helmets on this route, pretty crazy considering all the loose rock. Great rest day sandwiched in between more demanding objectives! Cooperative weather, too. Beer and burgers at Outay Brewery followed by Wiesbaden hot springs and vapor caves. Total bliss, life is good!

Standard Route  Sucess!

Yankee Boy Basin was cool and the drive was interesting. Can't say much about the view from the summit because we were completely socked in with clouds!

Snow in couloir  Sucess!

Climbed Lavender Col and the couloir above through the V notch. Some snow in the couloir - my ice axe was helpful.
