Approach

See "Getting There".

Route Description

Approximate Trailhead Elevation: 11900 ft
One Way Distance per my GPS: 0.9 miles
Approximate Hiking Time (one way uphill): one hour

From the trailhead, the route to the summit is obvious. Hike east across grassy slopes aiming for a saddle at the north end of the ridge that leads to the summit. At the saddle (12250 ft), you will find the crumbling remanis of an old cabin. Head south and hike up a short but relatively steep grassy slope that gets you to the top of a ridge covered with scree. This ridge is gently sloped and is easy to hike. Follow it south past the false summit to the true summit.

Essential Gear

Hiking boots.
