Starting point was the trail No. 217 at the end of Pack River Road. 2.5 mile hike to the lake and set up camp. We decided to make a camping trip out of it as well.

Route Description

This route is very straightforward. There are only 1 or 2 pitches where a rope is needed. Scramble N from the lake ascending the ridge, once on top head N.E. up the ridge (scrambling over boulders and loose rock) until you reach the first pitch. There are a couple of options here. Choose whatever you feel most confidant in. This route is not in any guide books, we were making our own way.

Essential Gear

Rope, Helmet (rockfall), light rack with nuts or stoppers. Accents into June will have to pack snow camping gear.
