From the trailhead at the West Fork of the Pahsimeroi hike about 2.4 miles up the drainage. You will see a large drainage off to your left, this is where you want to head.
Hiking up the drainage I have yet to find a good trail here, but you want to try and get up on the ridge as soon as possible. From there it is a straight shot to the top.
This nice bowl provides access to some of the best backcountry skiing you will find in Idaho (Conditions permitting)
I wouldn't rank a helmet a necessary for this particular route. There is minimal scrambling and no tight areas of major concern
Trekking poles make things a-lot easier that is for sure.
If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
