The Route
Arapaho Peaks Excursion

--------------------------- Skywalker Couloir climbs South Arapaho on the west side of the ridge connecting the two peaks.
There are three variations of the finish. The standard finish, shown here, is a steep snow pitch. "Han Solo" is a snow pitch that exits to the right, and "Princess Leia" is a rock route that exits to the left. ---------------------------

The crux of the traverse is this inclined slab. That's the Arapaho Glacier in the background. ---------------------------
