in different places mt. sneffles riefflls, ne$7es, Sna e7, and S ff 1 Th 11' 41 1, ne e s. e spe ing Sneffles was unfortunately used on C M li C t . . . s s up to and including the year 1920. The spelling is "Sneffles" in (1) The Colorado Mountain Club lists of 1913, 1914, and 1920, (carefully compiled by Ellsworth Bethel and James Rogers).
