Backpacked in on Saturday, July 24th, to the Snowmass Lake area. Rained off and on for our approach, but cleared off by the time we got to camp. The Lake is beautiful. On Sunday, hiked around the south side of the lake, then hiked up the steep slope above the lake to the base of the mountain. There wasn't as much snow as I thought there would be. There was some loose rock on our climb to the ridge, but the traverse on the other side of the ridge to the summit was a lot of fun on good rock. This was my 43rd Colorado fourteener.
