Excellent scramble. The short c4 step was interesting, and was a bit awkward on the down-climb, but it's only a move or two. Not as loose as feared, but still lots of bowling alley potential.

This was a fun climb. A little bit of loose rock near the summit but nothing too bad. Some nice fall colors were seen along the way.

Did this one with Josh Lewis. This was a great hike and scramble. We biked in which is highly recommended. Excellent fall colors accentuated the scenery and it was a beautiful October day. I thought the "loose rock" in the scramble section was overrated while on the way up. We didn't knock a single rock loose on the way up. While we were at the summit, I tossed a rock into the gully and it went down FAST! If you're climbing up and something breaks loose above you it will be on top of you before you are able to even look up after hearing it. I put on the helmet for the way down and we did have a couple rocks break loose on the way down the gully. 9 1/2 hours car to car with bikes for the approach and several breaks along the hike as well as 30 minutes on the summit.

Always good to be in the Monte Cristo area. Loose rocks go downhill fast.

Awesome mountain. I don't wear my helmet as much as I should, but I would wear it on this peak.

Beware of loose rubble on the scramble. This is a very fun route and extremely scenic in good weather. We used bikes for the approach.
