Notes: Solo day hike started at 3:22am. Many backpackers camped at the lake, and it caused me to follow the wrong trail for a bit. Climbed/traversed below the Snowmass Peak cliff band to reach the snowmass and continue back on the standard route. Ascended the "snow-free" route and reached summit at 10:29am. Wanted to go for N. Snowmass but I knew I had a long hike back, and I got caught in rain the last 20 minutes of my hike, anyhow. Total RT mileage is a bit longer because of the detour, but I think it was an easier way to the snowmass than climbing up all that scree.
