Snowmass Mountain
Elevation: 14,092 feet
Mileage: 9.8 miles
Vertical Gain: 4,400 feet
Route: West Face from Lead King Basin

July 30 - 31st, 2004

It had been over a month since Amy and I had climbed a 14er since we had been back in Wyoming for a couple weekends. It was time to get back at it and we decided to climb Snowmass Mountain from Lead King Basin. We decided to climb Snowmass from the west side to avoid having to backpack up to Snowmass Lake. Snowmass Mountain is a reclusive peak since it is hard to see from any highway. Snowmass often gets overshadowed by its more famous neighbors as well, the Maroon Bells and Capitol Peak, but is a worthy peak by itself.
