Campsite in Vestal Basin, below Vestal peak, with the Trinity peaks in the background.  This is the route to the Loft, left of the Ship's Prow. The Roach guidebook says Class 3 late season, with little to no snow. I encountered some 4th class rock up high, staying out of the snow.  Soloing Zig Zag.  Pass Coffeepot on the left (south) side, to approach Teakettle.  The final, sandy slope to the summit ridge.
