Route Description

From Heather Lake follow the creek that enters the lake on the west side. This creek leads up between the south and east ridges. The terrain begins as a boulder field that is fairly stable. Past that you encounter loose rock which must be carefully negociated.

From the top of the creek head due north to intersect the east ridge. This portion of the climb is also loose rock, but is not as steep as below. From the east ridge it is an easy hike to the south ridge which will lead directly to the summit.


Essential Gear

This route holds snow late into the year. Crampons and ice axe will be necassary in winter and early spring. For the summer monthes a pair of hiking boots and a wind breaker will do.
