Talus Slog  Sucess!

Did the Four Pass Loop around the Maroon Bells and went up the standard route from our camp at Snowmass Lake. The summit was nice, but the route would have been better with snow...too much talus. Took about 4.5 hours round trip. We saw a long-tailed weasel while pumping water from the lake.

S-Ridge fun  Sucess!

Climbed the South Ridge (S-Ridge) from Lead King Basin - a totally awesome route for sure!

Snow-less mtn  Sucess!

From the lake we carried our crampons most of the way, some folks put them on for a few steps. Remember 2012 the year of no snow?

West Face  Sucess!

Quick and easy. Wish we had done the "S" ridge, but the weather was threatening and we just decided to do what looked like the quickest route.

Long time ago  Sucess!

Date is a guess, from the few years I lived in Colorado. I do remember very enjoyable scrambling on sound granite. Beautiful place.

S Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the excellent S Ridge from Geneva lake. Pretty solid rock with excellent position. Easy 3rd class. Followed up with a traverse on the connecting ridge to Hagerman which was equally as fun although more difficult and loose.

East slopes from Snowmass lakes  Sucess!

Omigosh, what an amazing mountain!!! From the willows and scree field through the cramponing and the scrambling... God, I loved this mountain!!! This is a good, physical peak with incredible scenery...loved every minute of it!

Where's all the snow?!

Went up the Eastern route. Snow was soft and post holing was the name of the game by 8:00am! Turned back at ridge because of lousy snow conditions. Husband sunk up to above his waist, rolled over, whole body started going in with no hard snow in reach. Beautiful place though! Absolutely great!

West Face via Marble  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with Dustin Kelley. There was quite a bit of snow on the Peak and used Ice Axe and crampons once we hit boulder field. Difficult day climb. Great weather.

Bluebird Day!!  Sucess!

Hiked in to Snowmass Lake on the day before and climbed Snowmass via the East slopes on the "famous" snowfield... the famous snowfield that was barely there and where it was (above 12,500 feet) it was all deep powder and the entire climb was an awful posthole. Five hours later though I made it!

Rained off. Snowed off. Finally finished it as the 14er finisher just as the leaves are turning.

The Gift...  Sucess!

This loop made me question my sanity. Goldielocks and I planned a marathon length loop from Snowmass Creek TH: get to Trail Rider pass, then climb Snowmass Peak, then traverse the entire ridge across Hagerman, Snowmass Mountain, and Capitol. Then drop down the Capitol ridge (direct of course) and loop all the way back to TH. Oh yeah, in one day. We made it to Snowmass Mt in total whiteout (finally) and quit. Slog out of there was disgusting. Still almost a marathon. Snowmass is my least favorite mountain in the world. I might retire because of it.
