Description 

From the second lake in Williamson Bowl, the bowl between Tyndall and Williamson, head to the southern section of The West Face and a prominent rock band with black streaks.
Climb to the most obvious black water mark and ascend talus to the right of it. Climb a huge chute to it's top. Head through a small notch, overlooking Owens Valley. Traverse right to a narrow cleft. Follow this (3rd class) to the summit plateau. Wander south to the summit.
Use this same route for descent.
This is the most popular route on the mountain.

Location 

Approach by Shepherd Pass. Check with the Ranger Station about Bighorn closures.

Protection 

Beginners may feel safer with a rope and a few pieces.
