Approach


Take ID 28 north
Left on FS-181 for 2 miles look for road to the north
Follow this road till you see a road heading north.
This will lead you to the trailhead.

Route Description


I found the first part to be anything goes. You can see the trail from where you start out, and you can pick your way up the ridge untill about 10800' where it gets a little interesting. The route is easy to follow ans stays to the right of the crest all the way to the summit.

Some sections are a little nerveracking, but the exposure is minimal and the rock is very stable.

Essential Gear


I highly recommend gloves

Helmet-Since you are often times climbing with your head down on all fours.

If you bring trekking poles you can leave them at about 10,800.
