 Yale Standard Route  

Just a perfect day on Yale 11/20. Here are a few recent photos
of Mt. Yale. Ascent time 6 hrs./Descent time 2.5 hrs. = total
8.5 hrs.

On trail snow below treeline.

Some snow above treeline, no real postholing.

Slope to Saddle, deep snow was avoidable.
Note large boulder upper center, aim for that and do a slight
climber's right ascent.

Looking back to saddle from initial false summit.

Summit looking somewhat at east ridge.

Summit looking back at west ridge.

Could not resist an ELBRUS picture from June
Pashtakov Rocks to twin summits (left summit is the
high point.

Great pictures! I hiked Yale in the summer, but it‘s interesting to see that same route with snow.
