We started the route by heading up the small drainage between Woodland lake and skyscraper res... Once on the east ridge, the route (as indicated by another) was class 2... Some large rock pile traversing but no real scrambling and/or exposure... The route past the 12,400ft high point cannot be seen from the east but is more class 2 all the way to the high plateau that takes you over to skyscraper peak. Great views of Devil's thumb, Jasper and Storm lake(s) areas on this route...

I climbed Skyscraper Peak from Rollins Pass. It's a pretty easy climb, but very scenic. The weather forecast wasn't promising, but the weather held. There were clouds coming up the east side of the mountains, but it was mostly clear to the west.
I saw several people skiing Skyscraper Glacier.

Climbed on the way back to Rollins Pass from Devils Thumb/Devils Thumb Pass. Nice and easy peak.
As a loop from Hessie.
The pup and I from Hessie Trailhead. Also went over and tagged Pt 12660. Hard pressed to find any class 3 on this route.
With Jasper, Neva, 12660 & "Quarter to 5".
Climbed from Devil's Thumb and it was a great climb
Did a car shuttle from 4th of July TH to Hessie TH to climb Juliet on Neva and collect three other summits afterwards. Great day in IPW, as usual.
Sweet 70 degree finish on the glacier.
Skyscraper was the last of a series of 4 ranked summits from Neva after climbing Juliet. Nice little summit to take a nap on!
Bagged this one on the way back from Devil's Thumb and 12,660A.
