Mount Sneffels, CO 14,150’/4213m

I headed up Mount Sneffels in the San Juan Range on June 2, 2010.  Lots of snow and some flurries on the upper part of the mountain.  I climbed the NE Col on the North face of the peak, a route I have been eyeing for many years. Steep snow and ice made the route challenging.  It was my 5th summit of Sneffels in my career, and I climbed it ultra-light and fast.

Statistics for the day:

  • Started 4am from the East Dallas Creek TH.
  • Summit at 8am.
  • On top for 1 hour, back to my truck by 11am.
East Dallas Creek THComing up the Dallas Creek drainage.
