Route: From Chicago Peak
Posted On: 2021-08-06, By: supranihilest
Info: The ridge between Chicago and "Tomboy" is straightforward. Nothing really notable except how loose everything is, typical Sneffels Range scree and talus at the Class 2/Class 2+ level. The broken slabs near "Tomboy"'s summit are the coolest part of this peak. I returned to Chicago Peak and Imogene Pass Road. Don't make the mistake I did and take CR 361 down to Camp Bird Mine if you parked at the start of CR 26A (aka Imogene Pass Road). It's an easy mistake to make if you're descending in the dark like I was.
Route: From Tomboy Town

Info: Tomboy is in prime couloir condition. I did not attempt this route today, but had a good look at it. Attaching a pic taken from the ghost town of Tomboy, the first summit on the left is Tomboy peak. You can see the continuous snow in the middle of the pic to the saddle. Having done this route in summer, the current conditions will allow for a really good travel and avoid the talus fest. Oh and please take some papers and maybe a bigger container for the summit register, the last one when I was there in summer was small and was out of papers. Imogene pass is totally covered in snow and will require mandatory ice axe and crampons, you can take a few colouirs to T7 if you wanted that have good coverage to the ridge.
