Streetwalker Couloir

Mod. Snow, Snow, 1000 ft (303 m), Grade II,  Avg: 1 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Colorado > CO Ice & Mixed > Indian Peaks &… > Arapahoe Peaks

Description

This is not nearly as classic as its well known neighbor. A couloir of easy/moderate snow that is similar to the lower portion of Skywalker Couloir. After about 1000' of snow, negotiate a rockband by passing it on the right, and head west towards the summit of South Arapahoe Peak. In good conditions, Streetwalker could be a reasonable descent route from the summit.

Location

Right of Skywalker Couloir by about 200 yards, Streetwalker is the rightmost finger of snow.

Protection

If a belay is desired, a couple of pickets and a light rock rack should suffice.
