South Early Winters Spire: South Arete

Trip Details

Elevation: 7,807 Feet

Elevation Gain: 2,600 Feet

Distance: 6 Miles

Gear: Rope, alpine rock rack

We have always wanted to do this climb and we had the opportunity to do it with our friends before moving to Colorado. The climb was pretty easy climbing but we did get a bit off route at one point. We were glad to have a rope and alpine rock for the 5th class climbing since there are a few 5.5 moves along the way.

Lessons Learned:

  • Wearing rock shoes while scrambling is really painful
