Approach

Follow the same approach as to the Northeast Face route on Mt. Evans. The trail starts at the saddle between Mt. Warren and Mt. Spalding.

Route Description

Follow the trail up the east ridge. It stays just below the south side of the ridge until it reaches a notch. From this notch, it stays generally on the ridgeline, maybe a bit to the north side of the ridge all the way to the summit. The trail is faint in a couple spots but if you lose it, just look around and it's easy to find again.

Essential Gear

None needed.
