Shelf Lake & Solitude Lake Traverse Scramble Trip Report

Shelf Lake & Solitude Lake Traverse Scramble Trip Report

The Shelf Lake Cirque Traverse is also known as the Solitude Lake Cirque Traverse, which is also known as the Arrowhead-McHenrys-Powell-Thatchtop traverse. I managed to piece together details on the trip from guidebooks and a few online trip reports, but I still left not really knowing everything I wanted to know about the whole linkup. We weren’t sure of the exact route, and we didn’t know how long it would take or how hard it would be, so I figured another trip report out in cyberspace would benefit pretty much anyone considering this fantastic day of hiking, climbing and scrambling.

Solitude in the Maroon Bells Wilderness

Solitude in the Maroon Bells Wilderness

Adam’s trekking poles strike the rocks behind me. My steps fall in line with their metallic rhythm. The trail is relatively flat and wide, testament to its past life as a logging road. With each party of anglers and horse packers and hikers that pass, our confidence swells—we’re hiking in one of the most heavily trafficked areas of the Maroon Bells—Snowmass Wilderness during the most popular season. Solitude here is not easy to come by, but it’s Sunday evening. The forecast is calling for storms. Mother Nature might just be on our side this time.
