Cruisin'  Sucess!

Great snow conditions, only punched through once or twice. Had two technical tools, was grateful for them as we did the exit.

Ok route  Sucess!

Not as exciting as I thought it would be, though the exit was very enjoyable. Followed it up with the traverse and Old Baldy. With Prakash.

Nice but not as awesome as imagined  Sucess!

Even though it was a Sunday in June we had the entire couloir to ourselves! There were a few pebbles zipping down the big runnel already at 7am but it was easy to stay away from. The number of rocks implanted in the snow was sobering.

For some reason this climb didn't seem as spectacular as I'd imagined. A lot of it was lower angle than I'd expected. The steep exit was fun but short. The traverse over to North Arapaho afterwards added a lot to the climb.

Great Climb  Sucess!

Great climb! The force...aka the wind, was definitely with us. Snow was a little soft, otherwise great conditions.

Perfect Climb  Sucess!

Perfect conditions. The top gets soft pretty quick once the sun hits, but leave the car around 6 and you'll be fine. A second tool was nice to have.

Fun on Leia!  Sucess!

Soloed up Skywalker and the Leia finish this morning. 1:20 for the couloir. A few short melted out sections and a mixed step near the very top but still awesome. 4:30 RT with summit candy break and a bunch of pictures of all the awesome wildflowers on the way down.

Wierd Day  Sucess!

6 people in our group total, 2 turned around, 1 got altitude sickness BAD, everyone for the most part had a great time.
I belayed one friend the last 160' of Princess Leah(sp).

Excellent Climb!  Sucess!

Fantastic climb topping out at 55 degrees and a fun scramble over to N. Arapaho. Climbed with Tm, Eric, and Kris.,

Good Fun  Sucess!

A little wind kept the snow firm, was a cruiser of a climb. Fun steeps in the middle exit. With Eric, MikeyB, Kris.

Skywalker to South Arapaho  Sucess!

My first snow climb on a spectacular day. Took my time and learned from others as I went. Exited to the right near the top, no less difficult just more rocks to sit and rest. The wind gusts actually helped push me up this climb. Awesome views.

Steep nadir!  Sucess!

Wow! It was near 60 degrees near the top!

Nice Climb  Sucess!

Great climb on steep snow ranging from hard to soft. Belay'd and simul'd last 80m.

Slush Bucket  Sucess!

Hot and slushy climb. Won't be long before lots of rock exposed. Got nailed a couple of times with ice fall. Nothing to rant about. IMHO Flattop's routes are more interesting.
