The cliff bands were a lot of fun to navigate. I managed to mostly avoid the snowfields except for a small part near the base of the hidden east slope. Any earlier and I'd say some snow gear would have been a necessity, but I got by without it. Was absolutely exhausted by the end of the hike, not sure why but USGS really took it out of me.

Approached from Lower Cedar Creek. Worked around to the SE side of the peak and moved up to the cliff bands at the base of the summit. Gained the ridge and reached the summit from the North. Challenging climb and the cliff bands looked more difficult than they actually were (plenty of hand holds). Used ice axe a few times but the snow pac was pretty light this year. Great climb with Randy and his wife Val. I think this peak is more challenging than any of the 12,000 foot peaks in Idaho.

Stellar day with SuperDave. Followed Tom Lopez's route on the north face. Generally around 40° with a little 45. Crux was getting into the upper bowl, which included climbing a short waterfall with verglas over loose limestone.

This scramble had a little of everything from bushwhacking down low to snow field ascending up high. The summit just had the 2 previous known ascents from the early 90's (in a film can). I left a new summit register. There was very little signs of anyone else except the survey flares and junk at the summit. The scrambling was generally steep and loose with the exception of some wild limestone layers and until the lower south summit ridge (11,500) which had some solid rock.
