Take Alpental road to just across the Commonwealth Creek bridge. Then hike the roadway up the Sahale Ski Club slope, from the top of the cleared area, a track leads up the slope to the base of Guye Peak's South Rib.
South Rib: This obvious rib on Guye Peak is located on the W side of the South Gully. The rib, long a popular practice route, begins lower and S of the West Face. Sustained, interesting climbing can be found at the rib's toe, at about 3600 ft.
The rock is generally solid (although friable), and provides opportunity for class 3 and 4 climbing, with latitude for variety. There are variations on the rib and on the wall area to the E. One can also reach the rib from the gully on the right.
