Description

I hadn't been to the mountains in quite some time.  This trip was a lot of fun and just what I needed to get excited about climbing and hook up with some old friends.  We did a moderate snow climb called the Snow Lion Couloir on the southeast face of Mount Jasper in the Indian Peak Wilderness.  I even ran into some additional friends on the trail making there way to Skywalker Couloir on South Arapahoe Peak.  It was good to stretch the legs and stress the lungs.
