Via Coldwater Creek from Tamarack Lodge
Some class 3, knife edge stuff towards the summit.
Very fun scramble from Duck Pass to the summit. Would have enjoyed it more if lightning wasn't crashing over my head and then the heavy rain. Despite that, it was a great day.
Quick and easy! Love running this trail, of course I walked up the steep stuff. Crappy view thanks to thick smoke but interesting regardless. Too much garbage on the trail to the pass. :P
Nice climb and view. Considering the ease of approach, proximity to Mammoth Lakes and the great view, it seems like it would be climbed more often than it appears. Day one with Todd on a week long peak bagging trip on the East Side.
Came up via Duck Pass and proceeded to the shore of Duck Lake. From there we scrambled up the through the steep grassy/tree hillside and through the rock field to the summit.
Fun climb with great views. Cool look to the Silver Divide and also Northwest towards Mammoth Crest. Bloody, Laurel, Red Slate to the South...
Awesome views all around!
A nice scramble with good views.
