Was looking for the climbers trail to the Mchenry's Notch Couloir. Wound up at Black Lake and cruised up the SE slopes of Arrowhead with no beta. Salvaged a day at least!

SarahThompsonSummit Ramp Route x2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


7/19/08 - Arrowhead is an awesome peak! Approached from Black Lake and climbed the "Summit Ramp Route" on the south side. Although I believe it can be kept 3rd class if the correct line is sought out (saw some cairns), we enjoyed some 4th/low 5th class slabby climbing to gain the ramp. Lots of fun, and the scrambling was easier & less exposed than I'd expected. Routefinding wasn't an issue. Met Jon Krakauer & Bill Briggs on the approach - what a treat!!!

9/12/2015 - Used the ramp but then did some low 5th class scrambling to get on the summit ridge early instead of continuing to contour around below it on the north side. Then did the Glacier Gorge traverse over McHenrys, Chiefs Head, Pagoda, Longs & Storm.

Climbed the Shaft route with an alternate start. The climbing was nice. The hike was long. Other routes in the area make it even more worthy. You just can't beat a clear day in RMNP.

Mountain Jim

Climbed the first time in 1999 from the north, above Solitude Lake in a nasty loose rock gully and a chimney with a awkward chockstone.
Climbed the second time summer 2005 via the "Summit Ramp" route on the south face.
The south face route is preferable, by a large measure.

My first attempt was on August 27, 1999. When I reached the top of Arrowhead I became the first woman to climb all 126 of the named summits shown on the Topo map of Rocky Mountain National Park.
