Thanks to Morgan Brown for adding this peak.

A nice thirteener in the popular and beautiful Indian Peaks, which are easily and quickly accessible from Boulder. The standard route goes up from the Fourth of July trailhead (10,400'), which is up a forest service road, past the Eldora ski resort. A well-beaten trail (Arapaho Glacier Trail) takes you to a 12,700' saddle between Peak 13,035' and South Arapaho Peak. From there, the summit is a tedious class 2 boulder-hop.

A popular (and fantastic) traverse goes from South Arapaho Peak to North Arapaho Peak (13,502'). It requires some class 3/4 scrambling and is quite exposed during an electrical storm, but a worthwhile adventure.

Thanks to Morgan Brown for this description.
