|Peak:||Mt. Yale (14er)|
|Date of Information:||10/22/2011|
We did not go up the east ridge so I have no info past this point. The mountain had a small amount of snow on it, everything looked avoidable. Wear your blaze orange, there were quite a few hunters in the area of the east ridge.
Yale's East Ridge - Avalanche Trail Head
No snow until the ridge crest at 11,900 where you turn left off the Colorado Trail.
Yale's East Ridge - North Cottonwood Creek
