Note About the Route…

An invaluable resource for the route is Gerry Roach’s Colorado’s Indian Peaks: Classic Hikes and Climbs. He notes that there are some obstacles to hiking the divide, and I want to list them here. I will add more later about tackling these obstacles.

There are several technical obstacles to traversing right on the crest of the Continental Divide. From south to north, they are: Neva’s north ridge, South Arapaho’s southwest face, North Arapaho’s northeast ridge, north ridge of “Deshawa,” Arikaree’s northwest ridge, Paiute’s northwest ridge, Isolation’s north ridge and McHenrys Notch.”
