Approach


See the "Getting There" section of this mountain.

Route Description


Start out at the trailhead. You could stay on the main trail, which parallels the ridgeline and keeps you away from the crags & Pinnacles. Or you can choose to start out, and stay on the ridgeline. It's a bit more challenging than the trail. By staying on the actual ridgeline you’re able to closely explore the craggy rock formations (my personal favorite). The rock is loose and broken so be careful when climbing and try not to disturb the vegetation (“don’t be a meadow stomper”)

This short, but steep scramble is about .6 of a mile and about 700’ of elevation gain.

Essential Gear


Good sturdy boots, camara, and a cold one...
