This is reserved for HAMS team Meowtaineers for grad climb training.

This is a steep snow climb with average grade of 34 degrees, reaching up to 60 degree grades. BMS, or equivalent experience required. Contact the trip leader for questions. This will be a technical climb.  Crampons, helmet, Ice Axe, picket, harness required; second ice tool recommended. 

Take Arapaho Pass Trail about 1.7 miles and traverse snow towards base of Couloir.

We will likely use the Princess Leia exist but assess snow conditions. From top of couloir, hike to summit of South Arapaho Peak and descend towards and take the Arapaho Glacier trail back to the trailhead.

Teams should aim to be out of couloir by 7am this time of the year.
