If anyone wishes to take this page who has climbed the East face of Mount Daly shoot me (Matt Lemke) a PM. I just updated the Mount Daly page to have its standard route on the main page. This alternative route should have a separate route page
For the East Face Direct Route follow the defined rightmost trial, which is the main trail of West Snowmass Trail, once the Grass Ramp starts to go out of view. Take an unmarked sparse trail from the main West Snowmass trail off and head toward "The Grass Ramp". (See the blue route on the images)
