From the USGS Francs Peak quad; this image downloaded from topoquest.com.
There is supposed to be a trail from the upper basin to the saddle west of Point 11,930, but it is shorter and more direct to ascend from about the 10,000' contour south to the saddle just east of Chief's highpoint and then walk to the summit. Class 2 conditions abound, but a lot of Class 3 and 4 opportunities exist as well.
