Description

A technically easy slog and scramble up sand then slabs to the summit ridge, which is a very scenic and easy scramble to a superb summit.

Retrace your steps for the descent.

Probably best done early season, when there's hard snow, which would make it a much better climb. Ice Axe and crampons would be required.

Location

Somewhat easily reached from a camp at the Lower Treasure Lakes. Follow a faint trail south as if going to Upper Treasure Lakes, but stay in the gully, you'll soon reach a lake at 11,321 ft. This is passed on the left, then go up the gully on the left for the Southeast Slope - which is reached after a tedious large boulder field and passing another lake at 11,645 ft. on the right.

Protection

None - easy.
