A long day hike. Snowmass Lake is beautiful. T storms passed us by on all sides and allowed us to summit.
One of the most scenic 14ers - reminds me of Switzerland. My first time in crampons - little did I know I would be attempting Rainier the next summer. Plan to do it again in a couple of months.
I took a 5 day backpacking trip. We started near Crested Butte. We hiked over 4, 12,000 foot passes and did Snowmass Mtn. Snowmass was my second fourteener. I really enjoyed the scrambling on the ridge. I did not like the Snowfield much. It plain out scaired me. I would do this mountain again any day though.
