I left the trail half a mile or so west of St. Marys Falls, descended to cross the creek, and then climbed and bushwhacked my way south and south east up to the saddle east of the actual summit. Following my own tracks in light snow back made the trail-less journey easier. Pleased to find Mike Garratt's summit register.
This is a very nice hike i've done it both summer and winter.
Summited via a slight variation to this route.
