Route Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: 31 May 2003  Sucess!

Climbed a gentler snow slope east of Skywalker. On snow almost whole way from TH. Feared the steep snow and possible cornices on the traverse, so limited myself to the south peak.

Route Climbed: 4th of July Trailhead Date Climbed: June 29, 2002  Sucess!

The class 3 route from South to North Arapahoe Peaks make this mountain a favorite. A great get in shape hike for something like Long's Peak. Challenging but do-able. We climbed during the peak of the wildfires this summer so the views we had weren't very good. I would like to go back under better conditions.

Route Climbed: Skywalker Couloir Date Climbed: June 8, 2002  Sucess!

In this year of abnormally low snow, early June conditions ranged from near ice, to slushy unprotectable mush, to perfect styrofoam. It changed every hundred feet. The quote-unquote "easy" finish looked tougher than Princess Leia, so we went the Princess way. It was only four feet wide at places. A hidden cornice at the top finished off an exciting climb!

Great climb and awsome finish. It may pucker you a bit. Do the traverse to North Arap. while your there, definately worth it.
