Route: Santa Fe-Sullivan-Geneva-Landslide
Posted On: 2020-12-06, By: daway8
Info: Put on snowshoes partway up the road to Santa Fe (might almost be packed enough now to not need them) and left them on until the summit of Santa Fe, though walked over a few rock stretches and lots of snow that wasn't deep enough to actually need them. Just had boots going from Santa Fe to Sullivan to Geneva to Landslide but had to do a lot of kick stepping around Geneva and probably should have put my spikes on. On the way back wore microspikes till I got back to the road down Santa Fe then switched back to snowshoes. Stayed basically ridge proper the whole way which got spicy around Geneva (allegedly there's a trail off to the side - I neglected to research in advance and didn't spot on obvious trail). Also, a light touch of my hand on the ridgetop near Geneva dislodged an enormous arrowhead shaped rock that snapped one of my trekking poles like a twig. These are minor 13ers (2 ranked, 2 unranked) with not yet a ton of snow but packed more of a punch than expected. Made for a 10 hour day (not counting 30min+ getting my Jeep stuck at the trailhead).

Info: Bring your own water - while this is a short enough outing that you likely won't need much, there is none available to filter above Montezuma. Route easy to follow after leaving the road thanks to CDT cairns and occasional trail segments. Smoke was noticeable but mild early on, seemed to be getting worse as the morning went on. Was more short-winded than is typical for me on thirteeners this low (all are under 13,299'), currently have a mild sore throat and sinus inflammation. Extra caution recommended if you've got allergies/asthma/etc.
