John Raich,


This is one of the practice sessions for instructors and assistants of the Alpine Scrambling Course (Fort Collins).

The snowfields on the east sides of South and North Diamond Peaks provide good practice areas. They are approached from the parking area at the top of Cameron Pass.

Route Descriptions:
The approach route is labeled by S in the first and second photos. Snowfield 5 and 6 in the first photo have maximum slope angles of 38 degrees, slope angles of snowfields 12 and 13 are generally less than 30 degrees. All snowfield may have large cornices near the tops.

Bring helmet, ice ax, crampons, climbing harness, a couple of locking carabiners, belay-rappel device, a sling or two, mountaineering boots, ice ax, gaiters, cold weather clothing, wind and sun protection, lunch, and drink. Snowshoes (with trekking poles) or backcountry ski gear is needed for the approach.
