Up the East Ridge and then down the western slope to Bridal Veil Falls Date Climbed: May 4, 2008
Hike up the North Boundary Trail from McGraw Ranch, and then hiked west along the east ridge. Found the register, which was placed up there in 1992 and only signed by about a dozen or so people. The last to sign were in Oct. 2007. Instead of returning via the same way, we headed west and meet up with the trail to Bridal Veil Falls. Hiked up to the falls and then returned to the trailhead by following Cow Creek. Total distance was about 9.5 miles. Fair amount of snow near the summit, but the rest of the hike was snow free.
