Re: Skywalker and the Traverse

Hard to believe 'cause it was mid-June. Haha!

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.

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.

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.

Lots of fun traversing between the peaks. Great views as well

Also went to E bump  Sucess!

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.
