DescriptionThe route follows the path of least resistance up the west shoulder of Mammoth Rock. It offers a fun alternative to the short and easy scrambles up the southern side. The rock is not very good and would be hard to lead, but if you are comfortable soloing roughly 4th class terrain over loose rock, this route may be for you.
Start at the obvious ramp system about a third of the way up. It is a stair-like break in otherwise steep face. This is the start of the route. From there, follow the path of least resistance trending to climber's right. A few awkward moves are encountered, but never more than a move at a time. Once on the summit, descend by heading south towards the saddle between the Sherwins and Mammoth rock to downclimb the southern face by either the South Chimney (2nd Class) or the South Face (3rd Class).
