Description

This one is for the bold. Mt. Sniktau is best accessed from the top of the Loveland Pass road and will require a long hike along the northwest ridgeline. A shear steep face makes up the first six hundred feet before slightly mellowing into the treeline gully below. Follow the gully back to exit 220 where you hopefully have a ride waiting.
