Details

This trip is for RMOTHG members.



Mount Sniktau is just off Loveland Pass and the hike will be entirely above treeline. There should be wonderful 360 degree views of Grizzly and Torreys to the south and Trelease, Bethel, Woods, and Parnassus to the north across I-70.  If you have problems with altitude or cannot maintain a moderate pace this trip is not for you. The starting elevation is almost 12,000 feet and Mount Sniktau is 13,234 feet with a couple of false summits on the way. Threatening lightning storms will require immediate descent.  You will need to bring microspikes.  



I will send an email update and weather forecast 2 days before the hike.  The update will include whether or not you should also bring snowshoes.
