2016-07-24  Route: Old Baldy and S. Arapaho Peak Combo
Posted On: 2016-07-25, By: sdicenso
Info: The road is good to the TH, but rough. Used 4WD on the way down. The trail is good until the saddle. We only did Old Baldy. No trail from the saddle, but head straight up to the right, trying to stay on the rocks, to avoid walking on tundra. Get an early start. We started about 6:30. It started getting windy and clouds were building around 11. So we managed to turn some people around. But you will see a lot of late hikers lower down, hopefully not looking to summit.

Info: Clear & very nice trip to the summit. Great, beautiful mountain. Prime Conditions up high for outdoor recreation. There is not a lot of snow left. Trail runners were good. Had Ice Axe & Traction. But, didn't need. Stayed in pack. Travel safely / swiftly

2014-06-01  Route: SW approach, from 4th of July
Posted On: 2014-06-01, By: d_baker
Info: 4th of July TH is clear and mostly reasonable to access. Some passenger cars up there today, but there‘s a few mud pits along the road. Summertime trail to 4th of July mine is hit and miss to follow. Mostly snow covered the entire way, with various tracks one can follow, but well tracked and supportable. We didn‘t need snowshoes. Pic 1: Skywalker couloir on S Arapaho (climbers are reporting good conditions, but could vary w/temp swings) Pic 2: Neva (note the 4th of July mine in lower l. hand corner of picture -- dirt spot) Pic 3: S & N Arapaho (l. to r.) Pic 4: Jasper‘s NE face (12,923‘)
