First attempt at any of the peaks in the Maroon Bells/Snomass Wilderness. Buckskin pass made for an interesting lightning experience. Scattered thunder storms kept us on our toes, but without incident. Made it to Snowmass Lake in a short day, great view of Hagerman peak. The route from Snowmass Lake is relatively simple, an easy summit compared to other peaks in the area. One of the best views in Colorado, especially of Capitol Peak. Recommend it to others if you can handle the weather changes and the horse beaten trails. PS. it's like a zoo by Crater Lake.
