kandyceoutlandis4th of July trail and a camera
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007
I lost a camera on the 4th of July trail Sunday, July 22. If anyone found a Canon Digital Rebel, please, please email kandyce.kingsley@gmail.com ASAP! Thanks a million.
Apart from that HUGE, sad disappointment, the trail was gorgeous!

Climber via Skywalker, which felt pretty damn steep at the top through the Princess Leia finish.

Steepest couloir climb I have ever done. Wish I had a 2nd tool on this one as snow was too firm in most spots. Traversed over to South and added Old Baldy. Awesome day.

3rd time up South peak, first time over the traverse to the North. Great cloudless day with Andy and Jeff.

Great to be back climbing in CO and wonderful peaks. Lots of snow still hanging around up high!

Got up S Arapahoe on the way over to Caribou Lake, which is one of the most beautiful places to camp in Indian Peaks.

nice traverse - started at 5 am from camp site, was the only one on the ridge - but way too many people on the trail later in the day for my taste

South Arapaho. Winter solo. Long approach on foot up 4th of July road. Awesome bivy under the stars near the campground. Had trouble locating the peak due to high winds and blowing snow. No cajones for the traverse to N. Arap. in the wind.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2006


The climb up S Arapahoe was relatively easy, then attempted the traverse to N Arapahoe. My friend and I made it past the first crux with no problem (it was quite fun!), but he was feeling uncomfortable with some of the exposure we faced afterwards, so we turned around.

I was very impressed and awed by this ridge. I had climbed the Mt. Wilson-to-El Diente Ridge last summer and I found the Arapahoe ridge to have more sustained class III scrambling and more difficult route finding than I anticipated. Gerry Roach's guidebook on the Indian Peaks rates this at Class III, but I felt that truly underestimates the difficulty of the route and the one true crusx of the route.

Made a quick out-and-back on the traverse but got chased off Old Baldy by a thunderstorm. Glad the weather came in when I could escape quickly rather than on the ridge.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2006


Made the hike with my wife. The traverse was excellent. The climbing could be made as hard or easy as one wanted. The rock was solid and made for excellent scrambling. Only 2 cars when we got there and nearly 200 as we left. Also managed to take in the ranked 13'er known as "old baldy"

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2006


Climbed Skywalker with Mike, Marella, and CharlesD. Hit the base of the climb about 6:30am. Snow was rock hard and solid. Sunlight on the Princess Leia finish made it absolutely perfect. The schrund at the base of the Leia section is starting to open up a bit. Still passable, but not easily for much longer. Definately evidence of sporadic rockfall, and a couple whizzed by. Wear a helmet on this one.

Awesome climb, awesome day.

this is a great climb, i'd def. call it a classic.
another climber measured the angle at the top to be 45deg., i'd say that at max it might get up to 55; on some of the bulges on the upper left of the couloir. no way 65 deg. though.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2006


Ascent via Skywalker with direct finish. Departed TH at 0500. Perfect conditions: points-only penetration at start, forefoot penetration at top, and mostly dry on traverse. The traverse is awesome, and only has one tiny 4th class slab. First team up Skywalker (simul-solo), first team to N Arapahoe, first team back to parking lot.

After a couple days in CO (on Grays and the Flatirons) I was too whipped (and whimpy) to carry the ropes/axes/crapons, etc. into Skywalker as I had been planning, so we went light and climbed the SE Ridge.
