From the east via Shepherd Pass or from the west via the John Muir Trail.
This straight forward route starts close to the base of a prominent ridge that descends from the summit northward to a point approximately a half mile to the west of Shepherd pass. Ascend the west (right) side of this ridge. Near the top of this slope, the ridge joins another coming from the northwest. At the junction of these ridges is a notch which splits both riges from east to west. From this point on climb along the final summit ridge. Go around a large gendarme and stay to the right side until the summit ridge is gained once again. Continue to the summit. The exposure to the east is impressive so exercise caution.
Descend the same route.
Good pair of boots. Ice axe or trekking poles in early season.
