Lavender Couloir @ Mt Sneffels

  • April 28, 2013 · 5:00 AM

The decision is to drive down to Ouray tomorrow and stay at the one of the motels in town and at the wee wee hours head on up the road to do a spectacular snow climb up Lavender Couloir. This is a moderate snow climb and the snow should be in good condition as they did not get the same accumulation of snow as we did here in the front range. If you are interested send me an email at [masked] with your phone number and I will get you the details

    Would rate it 6 stars if I could because this was one of the best climbs in the gorgeous San Juans

    Hey are you guys coming through Gunnison??? I am not moving into a house until the end of May or I'd invite you all for dinner but if you are coming through should meet up! I'm looking forward to hikes later in season when the snow melts down up there.

    Yeah but its not in yet. Mark and I decided on Lavender Coulouir at Mt Sneffels. Its a 5.5 hour drive so we will be leaving tomorrow afternoon. Suppose to be low avy danger and I love the San Juans. Do you think you can swing it?

      BTW, I suspect everything will be a snow climb after the last couple weeks. But I am up for whatever - it will be just good to get out

    How about something on Pikes - still have not climbed it, and not that interested in doing it in the summer with cars at the top

    Hope you feel better Julie! Would definitely like to have you join us wherever we go. :)

    If I'm feeling better by tomorrow I might tag along, but right now it's looking doubtful. Sounds fun though and I'll check back and see where you guys stand on what you're doing : )
