It sounds interesting and I'm planning on hiking something Saturday. I'm not sure my climbing skills are up to the class 4 elements between the pass and Jasper Peak. I'll send you a PM.

3 or 4 miles, can't be much further than that.

If you decide to go on Sunday, then I would like to join. I did the Arapaho peaks earlier this summer, and decided on that trip that I would return to climb Neva and traverse to Jasper (I actually tried a descent from S Arapaho to link over to Neva, but it took longer than expected and clouds rolled in). Anyhow, this looks fun, so please let me know details if you go 9/23.


I have phenomenal route-finding abilities. Specifically, I have an uncanny knack for selecting the path of most resistance.
