Feeling silly even asking this. The only approach to Das Toof that I've used is apparently the long way: up the Snow Lake trail from the Alpental lot, cross the talus above Source Lake, and then go up-valley toward Pineapple. There is apparently a shorter (and much more popular?) approach straight up thru Alpental, and around the base of Denny...?
Looking at the GT map, thinking about making an after-work headlamp hike tonight to scout the approach for my future knowledge. Links, directions, etc. appreciated.
