S. Arapaho partner

Postby Yoric » Wed Oct 17, 2012 11:35 am

I'm a new climber looking for a climbing partner for South Arapaho this Friday. I made an attempt with my wife last weekend, but turned back due to low visibility and the lack of any desernable path to follow because of snow.

I would also consider any other peaks in the area. I'm a fairly new climber although I do have extensive hiking experience other places.

We built a trench for you to 12k. A couple hikers followed us and might have cut the trench higher. With the sunny weather this week the snow should be less of a problem this weekend. Regardless my understanding of the route is: "up till you hit the saddle, then hang a left." Should be doable without a trail.
