Easily visible from Dallas Divide near Ridgway. Just west along the ridge from Mears Peak. It's unnamed on all maps I have!!

Looks like Sneffels.

It's not officially named, but was identified as "S 9" by the San Juan Mountaineers back in the day (the S because it's in the Mount Sneffels area).

Thanks Sarah! Skinned into there from he north thru the Ralph Lauren ranch in Feb of '05 on a reccy and then in Feb of '06 to climb that gorgeous NF -- got 14" dumped on us as we camped at the base, so we skeedaddled. Haven't been back since, but I have always wondered about it!! Is there a better approach? Would the North Pole hut be helpful? May want to try again this winter!

Thanks for the input Momo, but its actually quite a bit west of Sneffles. But they are certainly BOTH amazinly beautiful peaks!!

There's a mixed line or two and a classic ski line on it. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
