Arapaho Traverse Sunday 2/3

Postby John_Young » Fri Feb 01, 2013 6:29 pm

Fellow Hikers,

I'm planning for the Arapaho Traverse this Sunday and winter technicians are welcome.

The plan: Depart Boulder at 5am and head to Eldora where the 4th of July road is probably blocked. Hike the 4th of July road to Arapaho Pass then continue on the west ridge of South Arapaho to the summit. We can take the Arapaho glacier trail shortcut if conditions permit. Safety is more important than the summit, and hopefully we can return for kickoff.

Gear: Snowshoes, Crampons, Axe, Beacon, Probe, Shovel and summit beer. This will be a long day.

Have fun and be safe tomorrow y'all! I took this pic of the Arapaho's from the top of Eldora today. Much more snow than I expected to see.
