This was my first climb of Sneffels. I did the standard South Slopes route from Yankee Boy Basin.

South Slopes  Sucess!

Hiked the South Slopes from Yankee Boy Basin Trailhead with my friend Keith. Nice views of the Blue Lakes and Dallas Peak.

Failed attempt

Wasn't prepared for the still heavy snowpack in early July. Without crampons/axe didn't want to attempt the last steep gully climb coming from Yankee Boy Basin.

easy southwest ridge  Sucess!

7/30/10- repeated the SW ridge w/aaron and the davis guys after having this sneffels idea popped on me just before leaving for vacation. what a fun, unexpected way to start a trip!

8/31/07- climbed the much easier than expected southwest ridge with jamie, mike and kiefer. it was a nice, short day to kick off a three-day labor day climbing weekend!

tried kismet, but clouds began to loom so we high-tailed back into yankee boy basin.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Was extremely surprised at how short this ridge actually was. Nice summit but a little disappointing. Was expecting, I don't know, more of a challenge?
Good day out though. Yankee Boy Basin is stunning!
Scrambled with Shanahan96, JamieNellis and Aaron Ihinger.

Loved it!

The South Ridge is great. Had great weather, and was able to spend about a hour on the summit. Great mountain!

Great climb  Sucess!

Summited via the South Ridge route, came down the Lavender Coulior. Great climb, one of my favorites. Awesome views from the top to the north, and back across the San Juans.

Mt. Sneffels  Sucess!

This was the first 14'er I ever tried, not really knowing what I was getting into yet. I did not succeed the first time. The second time I went with snow in the couloir and thought it was a lot easier!

2nd timer...  Sucess!

and I'll be back for more! Climbed the SW ridge this time and I just can't get enough of this mountain!

Climb via the SW ridge  Sucess!

WOW- what FUN sustained class 3 climbing! A beautiful day for my 42nd 14er summit:-) We loop hiked and came down the standard route... Only negative: I was shocked at the number of people going down the gully without helmets on (it seemed that the parking lot of people kicked down a rock every 2 minutes)!

up 7 over blue lakes pass  Sucess!

S. Ridge  Sucess!

Interesting route, certainly suspect rock in places

Lavendar Col  Sucess!

Great follow-up to the SP Gathering in the San Juans. I enjoyed a second day with kilimanjaro1, vanny37, chicagotransplant and kane. I can see why Aaron says this is his favorite CO 14er. Beautiful mountain and fun climb, especially the snow and scramble at the top.


vanny37 - Jul 23, 2007 10:06 pm Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with chicagotransplant and Kane. Great ridge route. The main gully to the ridge had some soft snow that required a few harder moves than most likely would be required with the gully dry. Top portion of the climb is stellar. Descended standard route.

SW Ridge ascent, standard route descent  Sucess!

SP Gathering "epilogue" peak. Kane, Vanny37 and I headed up the ridge while kilimanjaro1 and jeffrawn headed up the Lavender Col route. Still some snow and ice in gullies used to gain the ridge crest. 3rd class mud, wet rock, loose rock and a few 4th class moves will also be required until it fully melts out. The ridge crest itself is great though!

Also still snow on the upper gully on the standard route (which we descended).

Fun Snow!  Sucess!

Awesome early morning snow climb for the whole way up. I wouldn't have climbed it any other way. The views were beautiful as well.

Lavender Col  Sucess!

Beautiful day for a hike, even though the snow clouds moved in on us about 2/3 up. We enjoyed the hike anyway. Peak was socked in when we got there, so didn't get to see the view, but hope to go back just for that. Sun was out and shining bright again, about 2/3 down. It's amazing how that works. :o)
