Approach


Start from the parking area described on the mainpage.

Route Description


From the parking area (3600'+), the peak is visible as the leftmost of several points. Hike up the slope through the saddle between the summit and the next point to its right.
Continue around to the northeast side of the summit to a spiny ridge coming down from the summit.
Scramble up onto this ridge, turn left, and follow it up toward the summit.
Soon you will see two slots coming down from the summit. Follow the left slot through some easy class 3 rock up to the summit.

Essential Gear


This is a class 3 route near the summit, it does not require any gear other than that normal for a dayhike.

2nd chute and another approach

There are two Class 3 chutes/routes on the highest finger. The chute that is E of the spiny ridge mentioned above is best in my opinion. Steeper and more solid. Plus you can avoid the footsteps some moron chiseled into the rock on the other class 3 route.



You can also come up the dirt road and wrap around to the N side of the fingers. I think this is preferred to walking up the south slopes and heading towards the saddle
