DescriptionSki mountaineering destination east of the popular Alta Peak has a superb view from its summit.
The NW Ridge is a fun Class 2 scramble from the sublime Pear Lake.
Getting ThereFrom the Wolverton Trailhead take the Lakes Trail to Pear Lake, then follow the cross country use trail, marked by occasional ducks, to Moose Lake, leave this at the rocky gap on the crest of the eastern wall enclosing Pear Lake.
Go here for permits if planning an overnighter.
If planning an overnighter I highly recommend camping at Pear Lake, which is very beautiful but also very popular, so popular that it has assigned camp sites.
