Overview

Fun, consistent grade at about 25%, above tree line and sheltered by a ridge to the west.

Description

To access the line, continue WNW from the Arapahoe Lakes trail before it heads south to end at the lake. You'll pass a short headwall to access an upper basin. Cross the basin and ascend another headwall to a ridge. Head north up the ridge to a saddle and then switchback west up the final slope. Descend the ascent route.
