SW Ridge in the Mist  Sucess!

Took my sister and my best friend up their first 14er! It was a wet yet awesome day :)

Lavender Col  Sucess!

We started way up at 12460' which felt like cheating a little bit, so we decided to throw in "Kismet" and Cirque. Several hours on the talus and we decided to give it up. Gorgeous area, and I'll certainly be back for Teakettle and Gilpin!

Chilling Start

Driving up Yankee Boy Basin, we were stopped by a number of emergency vehicles ahead on the shelf road. At first, we thought it was search and rescue; then the coroner's vehicle pulled up behind. My understanding is that it was a fireworks-related incident from the night before, where a young man was running to get away from a lit fuse and fell off the shelf. As for the hike, we had large group that then split into three groups. I took the younger kids and we safely made it to about 13,400 ft.

Mt. Sneffels  Sucess!

Beautiful drive up, nice wildflowers at the beginning of the hike. Great views from the top, especially of the Blue Lakes. Somewhat annoying scree climb, but overall awesome 14er.

Yankee Boy Basin  Sucess!

Ended up on Kismet first, then went over to Sneffels. What a fun peak! Skied from Lavender Col.

East slopes from Blaine Basin  Sucess!

The intention was to do the Snake, but we settled on the east slopes, joining the standard route at Lavender Col. Blaine Basin is an amazing place to visit.

snowclimb & ski descent  Sucess!

of the birthday (south) chutes. Due to our desire to get off the summit quickly due to high winds, the upper part of the ski descent was still scary frozen mini-suncups, but the snow was soft lower down.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Yankee Boy Basin to the ridge, love the whole area. Flowers were fantastic and view to the Blue Lakes was bonus

Snake was the right choice  Sucess!

Got spanked on the N. Face a year earlier, had to come back and climb ice to get this one done! A great route, but a little loose at the top.
