Keep in mind, most folks will NOT enjoy the long approach and chossy top-outs. For those seeking adventure, cooler temperatures, and a scenic hike, this is a decent half day outing.
It appears some of these routes have been previously climbed. If you have the names, FA parties, and dates, I can update the corresponding routes.
Follow the signs for the Chief Ouray Mine/Upper Cascade Falls. From the Upper Cascade Falls trailhead (before the campground), hike 0.4 mile to a trail junction, turn left, and hike an additional 0.2 mile to another junction. Turn left again, and continue just over a mile to the crag located conveniently on the trail. If you follow the trail around a buttress and can view the Chief Ouray Mine, you have traveled too far.
Stats: ~1.6 miles, ~1,700 gain, ~45-60 minute approach.
Trailhead parking: N38.0244, W107.6629.
Routes: N38.0265 W107.6548.
