Quick climb from Long Lake. I originally thought the summit was going to be near the buttress. I'm glad I chose the easier climbing to the left as it put me a few feet from the summit. The sand chute made for a really quick descent.
"It’s hard to mess this up."
I messed it up. Tried a few different lines,all choked with brush. Came home with nice pix, pine sap head to toe, but no summit.
Unless you're looking for a real spicy route, stay far left of the prominent buttress.
