Description Suggest change

This is a very good couloir climb in late spring into early summer. When it melts out it becomes a class 3 scramble to the summit. From either Spanish Creek trail head, or South Colony Trailhead hike up to Bear's playground which is a massive plateau/saddle between Kit Carson Peak and Crestone Peak. From Bear's playground traverse around the north side of Crestone Peak until you reach a dominate snow couloir. When you reach the saddle at the top of the couloir, scramble to the right to the summit.

Protection Suggest change

Just axes and crampons.
