my favorite  Sucess!

Remains my favorite 14ers. Spectacular to look at from the north. Yankee Boy has incredible flowers. The peak has some scrambling and great views into the San Juans

Mt Sneffels  Sucess!

Nothin' like a little bluegrass fest in telluride and then some fun in the mountains. we did some scrambling up the ridge with mostly rock, and some snow, from blue lakes. It took longer to walk down the standard route, that way is thin slippery scree, and I think that the steeper way we came up would be better for the descent as well. great view of surrounding mountains from the top.

Exciting climb  Sucess!

Climbed with a friend via Lavender Col. Snow and ice in the couloir made this more difficult--the escape notch near the top of the gully was covered in ice. Lots of fun. Beautiful sunrise in Yankee Boy Basin.

Really nice climb. Super windy on top by clear, nices views of fall colors.

Easy Standard Route  Sucess!

Easier than I thought. It was only tough through the initial gulley. 4 Hours round trip with a good break on the summit. We were in the clouds on top.

A Wonderful Day!  Sucess!

A wonderful mountain. I summited via the South West ridge with my dad, Aaron Johnson, and met skorpio on the way down!

Fun route, though descending the Scree Col was a pain.

Yankee Boy Basin TH, Ascend SW Ridge, Descend S Slopes  Sucess!

For a change I think I surprised my husband with my willingness to scramble. Maybe I'm just too dumb to be scared.

My First Fourteener!  Sucess!

Yehaa! The first and my favorite. 12 times on the summit now and counting.

from Blue Lakes Trailhead  Sucess!

Beautiful hike past the Blue Lakes, over the pass, and then took the standard route up Lavender Col. Cloudy and rainy all day. Near zero visibility from the summit. Have to go back another day to check out the views.

The Standard Route  Sucess!

An easy & fun scramble. Took me two and a half hours from the parking area @ 10700ft to reach the summit. A small wildfire was burning outside of the Montrose area but the smoke was far away. A GREAT climb!

South Ridge with Insistent rodent  Sucess!

A Pika on Blue Lakes pass tugged on a friend's shirt while she sat. "Snacks? You got snacks?"

Gerry Roach says the South Ridge is less difficult than it looks. Egad - he must think it looks awfully difficult. =) Anyway, the level of snow and crumbliness of rock made for a hair-raising, bona-fide adventure.

Yankee Boy Basin TH, Ascend S Ridge, Descend S Slopes  Sucess!

The scramble up the S ridge was great - it's all route finding. The summit was loaded with climbers when we reached the top. They'd all taken the "easy" way up and wondered where we'd come from. I don't think they were very impressed when we told them.

Route Climbed: South Slopes II  Sucess!

I tried to 4WD across Engineer Pass into Ouray but was blocked by an 8 foot snow drift so I had to drive 140 miles back to Montrose and bagged a hotel. I made it to the Yankee Boy Trailhead around 8 the next morning and ended up going with a guy I met there. The Scree Col was filled with snow from an early season dump that happened a couple of days prior. It was a totally fun climb and we were both left with “perm-a-grin” afterward.
