- Date Hiked: May 6, 2012
- Miles Hiked: 5.0
- Elevation Gain: 2,723'
- Hiking Partner(s): Jeff Shafer
- With only a half of a day available to get out, Jeff and I simply
went up to Fremont Pass south of Copper Mountain and made a quick jaunt
up Mount Arkansas and it's North Couloir. It could have been
quicker had I paid a little more attention on the approach, but we
eventually climbed the couloir and topped out on Mount Arkansas.
Instead of cutting southwest about a mile and a half up the road, we
hiked the entire basin below Democrat, Buckskin, and Tweto before
circling around and reaching the base of the couloir below Mount
Arkansas. We descended the north ridge back to the trailhead.
