A fantastic alternative to climbing a 14'er. I summitted South Arapaho Peak via the standard route (Arapaho Glacier Trail/Fourth of July Trailhead) and attempted North Arapaho Peak via the connecting ridge. Unfortunately, an early (10:30 am) thunderstorm chased me off the ridge about 3/4 of the way to N.A.P. The ridge has some exciting scrambling. Lots of class 3 with a few isolated ultra-short (one or two moves) class 4 pitches.
