I climbed this one in the summer of 2001. The peak is a nice Class 2 scramble from Bishop Pass. We camped on the east side of Bishop Pass near Saddlerock (?) Lake. You could do this one from the South Lake trailhead in a long day, but backpacking in is much more enjoyable. There was a lot of scree up this West Slope route. Wear good boots. A pair of gloves is not a bad idea. There is a beautiful view of the Palisades Glacier on top
