Fresh Snow  Sucess!

We camped at the fork, and so were the first ones on the mountain. Fresh snow had fallen, so we blazed the trail up the last 1000 ft. Snowshoes were extremely helpful.

Yale SW Slope  Sucess!

Typical Sawatch Peak, but with a pleasurable top out and spectacular weather for being among the giants.

Up E Ridge, Down Denny Ck  Sucess!

The E ridge was a nice walk (and uncluttered with people). My hopes re getting a lift down the Cottonwood Pass rd from the Denny Ck TH back to my car at the Avalanche Gulch TH were largely forlorn. Finally got a ride when I was about half a mile from Avalanche Gulch. I didn't realize how close I was, and felt bad for stopping the guy....

From Denny Creek  Sucess!

Beautiful day in the mountains with Greg and Colette. Loved this mountain but don't leave anything unattended when you begin the scramble. The marmots take whatever is available.

Standard route  Sucess!

the last scramble up the ridge makes for some great pictures if you're on the summit looking down at your friends coming upwards.

East Ridge  Sucess!

East Ridge, second ascent of Yale. Only a handful of people on this route and not to many people on the summit, the benefits of starting early and doing a less popular route :)

Fall's here!  Sucess!

Gorgeous foliage all around. Great hike. I used my microspikes on the descent from the summit to the ridge. Others were in tennis shoes and seemed fine, but I know they were slipping more than me. Can get around snowpatches up until that last summit approach from ridge.
