See mainpage for approaches to Lonesome Lake. From the outlet, hike to Seclusion Lake (10,702') .

Route Description

From the lake, several couloirs (they are more like gullies) rise NE to the summit plateau. The easiest route, if found, goes at Class 4 but low Class 5 moves will likely be encountered. On the skyline is a keyhole in the ridge. It seems obvious to head towards this feature (and may be cairned) but gullies to the right can also be used and, while they begin as steep slabs, they bypass the worst parts of the ridge. There is some loose rock. Above, contour around west summit and walk east to true summit. On return the sharp gendarmed ridge can be followed to 12,537' Camels Hump and from there descended to Texas Pass. Or the loop can be done in reverse. Allow a couple hours for the Class 4 ridgeline.

Essential Gear

Full backpacking gear. Rope for climbers who may request a belay. Rock shoes (as if you'd go to this area without them).
