Climb directly up the ridge, following a trail winding around spires. Occasional 4th class sections provide the challenge. The final crux lies about 200' below the summit, and consists of a slabby traverse on slick rock. Srcamble the final stretch past the topout of Dead Dog Couloir to the summit. Descend to the Grays-Torreys saddle and pick up the trail back to your car.
For a true alpine feel, try it in winter or spring conditions.
