Ascent Trip Report

We drove by a tough road Marble to Crystal, by a tough 4WD road to Lead King Basin and climbed by a lush and scenic trail to Geneva Lake. We camped and speculated on how to go up Snowmass.
Sunday we hiked past Little Gem lake, up to Siberia Lake and then up
the mountain by the 'west' ridge. We made the summit by 10:30 am. We
descended by roughly the same route.
