El Diente (14,159') and Mt Sneffels (14,150')

This past weekend, my buddy Alan B. and I decided to see if we could add a few more summits to our list of 14ers. When the weekend came to a close, El Diente and Mt Sneffles were checked off the list!!! This was the couloir we chose to climb to gain the ridge on El Diente.
As you can see, the slope was pretty steep (approx. 45-50 degrees) definitely requiring crampons and a mountaineering axe.

This was the couloir we chose to down climb.
A well deserved rest after a great weekend with a great climbing partner!!!
