DescriptionThis is a great training route that can be done in a long day, though most will choose to spend a night on the ridge. Probably the best route from the Bunny Flat Trailhead.
LocationFrom Horse Camp climb the obvious ridge to the left. This joins Casaval at about 9,800 ft. Follow this ridge to the base of Misery Hill and then to the top.
Descent via West Face Gully or Avalanche Gulch is the easiest choice for parties doing this without setting up a base camp. Otherwise, descend back down the route (this is the safer choice during high avalanche danger as well).
