Description

This satellite of Mt. Moran gets little traffic but is seen and admired by every party climbing the nearby CMC Route. Eye-catching and dramatic, the formation has some good climbing and you're unlikely to share the summit with another party.

Getting There

Leave the CMC Camp and head up towards Drizzlepuss as one would for an ascent of the CMC. The wall to your east is all part of the West Horn. Climbers aiming for the East Ridge should watch for a conspicuous gap in the east ridge of the Horn, with a prominent tower separated from the upper ridge. A short distance above this gap is a gully with a short headwall in it, and this gully leads onto the ridge itself. This is the start of the climbing for the East Ridge route.
