South Arapahoe  Sucess!

My first official thirteener (not counting Mauna Kea). I'd been in Boulder for less than a month, so I was feeling the elevation. Otherwise I would have done the traverse. One day I hope to get back up and do it.

South/North Traverse  Sucess!

A mellow outing from the 4th of July TH. The ridge scramble was great fun, a light dusting of snow in the shadows up high, not enough to cause any problem though.

Skywalker  Sucess!

Barely successful, but successful nonetheless.

arapahoe traverse  Sucess!

summited both arapahoes and old baldy with jamie. we had a wonderful adventure into the indian peaks wilderness. it's a great outing without having to travel a long way from the front range. we can't wait to unearth more gems in this area this fall!

4th of July trail and a camera

I lost a camera on the 4th of July trail Sunday, July 22. If anyone found a Canon Digital Rebel, please, please email ASAP! Thanks a million.
Apart from that HUGE, sad disappointment, the trail was gorgeous!

Skywalker  Sucess!

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

via Skywalker Hans Solo  Sucess!

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.

Celebrating 30 yrs of Star Wars...  Sucess!

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

standard route  Sucess!

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

Nice diversion  Sucess!

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

South Arapahoe+traverse to North  Sucess!

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

Route: 4th of July TH  Sucess!

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.

S Arapahoe  Sucess!

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.

The Traverse  Sucess!

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.

The Traverse  Sucess!

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.

Traverse and Old Baldy  Sucess!

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"
