Mountaineering: Not Dead Yet

There may be a decline in the number of climbers registering for Mt. Rainier and other big peaks, but popular mountain routes are still all too popular. As the spring alpine season gets under way in Colorado, here's a reminder: This pic was taken in early June of 2004, looking down the south couloir on Mt. Arapahoe in the Indian Peaks. Take a number!

Nice pic, is that a route in CO? Which one?

Damn, that reminds me of a picture in an old Climbing Mag showing an ice climb in Korea with a ridiculous number of climbers on it. Crazy!
