DescriptionA very long scramble with 3000' of climbing not including the approach. The rock on the route is pretty loose and shattered, but the climbing is all easy scrambling.
There is no complex route finding here, just gain the ridge by whatever looks fun and easy and follow it to the summit. On the ridge there are a couple steeper steps and one short downclimb, all around the 3rd class rating in difficulty.
LocationLeave the Convict Lake trail at the southwestern short of Convict Lake and climb a prominent talus slope towards a saddle with some clumps of trees. Gain the ridge where it looks best. There are a lot of ways to go here.
Descend via the eastern slope of Mount Morrison.
