Ridge Route from Shorty's
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
This is the route we took from the Canyon up the first ridge. Some guidebooks suggest going farther W up canyon, then doing a ravine/talus slog. The route shown went up a nice, firm ridge and intersected a nice, switchbacked and level (side-to-side) pack trail. Saw a use trail of sorts all the way to the intersection with Mahogany trail at ~10k'(often just distinct by boot-prints in dust).
