Fantastic  Sucess!

This was the first peak(s) I climbed while out west and got me hooked on alpinism. Very memorable.

Via Skywalker  Sucess!

Brutal wind and snow at the summit (gotta love JUNE Climbing in Colorado) took longer than we would have liked due to our large group but most of the party summited S. Arapaho

Skywalker Traverse  Sucess!

combined an ascent of Skywalker with the traverse over to N Arapahoe. Look forward to repeating this climb annually.

Quick Day on the Traverse  Sucess!

Only a 5 hour day, but a great time on the traverse. The crux really wasn't bad at all.

Traverse Done  Sucess!

Came back for revenge after the snow and ice shut me down. Got both peaks today and a really beautiful view from the tops. Fun stuff. 4:20 roundtrip from 4th of July.

Just South (solo traverse attempt)  Sucess!

Tons of snow and ice on the route. Made it to SA from 4th of July quickly and started across the traverse. An hour later I got shut down by the third crux as it was just too icy and snow covered to get across safely. Will be back to get revenge soon.

Racing the thunderstorms but a great hike nonetheless.

great traverse  Sucess!

This was a fun ridge climb. It posed just enough challenge to be fun ... like its airy "catwalk" to get the blood pumping ... some minor routefinding challenges ... and a bit of good class 3 slab/crack scrambling. Views were stellar.

Thanks to tombaldwin's post on a thread, we knew this would be snow-free, so we didn't need to bring any unnecessary gear (thanks, Tom!).

South/North Traverse  Sucess!

Finished rather late due to an early detour, fortunately it was a great day (weather wise) for a late summit. The South Peak was a marmotopolis, and the mayor allowed me to take several pictures of him posing on the summit. Then he chewed up the grip on my trekking pole while I wasn't looking. Now I know why people don't like marmots.

Loved the traverse: a really fun class 3 scramble, with various features to negotiate, all on superbly solid rock. The exposure was noticeable but not too much to write home about in my opinion. If you've tasted a little rock scrambling and really want to get your feet wet, I think this is a great spot for it. If you're already knee deep in mountaineering, then you should have plenty of fun with this one.

Skywalkin' the Traverse  Sucess!

With Eric, MikeyB, and Kris. Good company. Climbed Skywalker straight up, traverse to N Arapaho then back to S Arapaho. Good angled snow, probably good for weeks to come. Fun traverse.

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.

Skywalker and the Traverse  Sucess!

Tim, Mike, Kris and I climbed the Skywalker Couloir in great conditions. There was still a great amount of snow in the couloir, on the ridges and in the basin. It's hard to believe it was mid-July! We traversed the fun Class 3 ridge over to N. Arapaho, then back to S. Arapaho and out. Perfect day.

Re: Skywalker and the Traverse

Skywalker, North Star, Arapaho Traverse (x4)  Sucess!

9/19/04 - A storm came out of nowhere as we headed back to South Arapaho making this an epic day. Inexperienced at the time, we got off route and found ourselves on slick, steep rock. Learned a lot that day!

6/6/10 - Climbed Skywalker (Leia exit) and made the traverse to North Arapaho. The traverse is a nice little romp with some snow.

6/12/11 - Climbed North Star Couloir on North Arapaho and traversed to South Arapaho. Fantastic tour.

6/24/15 - Climbed Skywalker with Kylie. Did the Princess Leia finish which was just barely still in. Traversed out and back to North Arapaho.
