Route Description

There is not much to say here. I am adding this just to conform to SP format.

From the 12200 ft saddle, all you have to do is to go up a pile of red/white scree just below 400 ft high to reach the top of a ridgeline. You will then hike the ridgeline 100-200 ft to reach the summit. The scree is slippery.

Essential Gear

Hiking Boots.
