Mt Sneffels

On the last day of the San Juans trip we headed up to Yankee Boy Basin to climb Mt Sneffels via the SW ridge route. Andrea and I did this climb three years ago, and since Amiee had never been on the summit of a 14,000 foot peak, we thought this would be a fun debut for her.

The SW ridge (from the low point on the left side of the above photo, through the pinnacles to the summit) has some fun scrambling. We took that route for the ascent, and then descended via the standard route (giant scree field on the right).
