|Peak:||Mt. Yale (14er)|
|Date of Information:||01/23/2012|
Just got back from Yale, TR to follow. Got off route in the trees, waded through thigh-hip deep sugar for 90+ minutes to saddle. numerous false trenches and trails in the trees, STAY RIGHT (east) whenever the trench splits. High camped just below saddle, but was absolutely wasted from postholing. Packed up and headed out next am. No summit, but first 14er attempt in 10 years; felt great, BOMBER weather, and great partner! Try again in Feb!
