A quick approach and easy skin back to the car gets you a nice steep face with a variety of lines

Need to Know

This is generally a spring route. Beware of hidden rocks. There are a few nice lines through some drops, but there are others that will put you right on top of a largish cliff.

Description

Starting at Loveland Pass, follow the Mount Sniktau Approach. If you are facing Loveland Ski area, this will be the right side of the road. Continue up the approach to the second bowl. The bowl is just below the first false summit and will be to your right. There are a number of lines through here to choose from. Beware of cornice buildup, especially in the winter months. It is windy here and they build quickly. It is generally best to choose a line that will lead you to the hairpin turn in the road below. Pick your line and drop in!

Upon reaching the road, simply hitch hike back up the pass. Alternately, if you have a really good friend who likes the views but isn't a skier, you could have them drive you.
