 Thatchtop to Arrowhead Traverse   

Finally after a 4 year hiatus and missing out on the originally scheduled trip back in 2007 with Andy I was able to make it out and complete the Thatchtop to Arrowhead Traverse, a spectacular class 3-5 circuit of Thatchtop, Powell Peak, McHenry, and Arrowhead in RMNP.

ridge traverse from McHenry's to Arrorhead looks like a tidal wave. That's quite the descent off Arrow, I vaguely remember some exposed 4th class, low 5th class moves going up that thing (and witnessing Jon Krakauer and buddy climb the Godfather 5.11b?) and lastly, thats a cool shot (image #13).

Your weekend of scrambling sure beat out my weekend of moving and working. You should have switched last weekend with this weekend, that way I could have joined you. Those are some nice shots you took!
