Descriptionfrom Secor's Peaks Passes & Trails 3rd edition:
"Begin by climbing the gully that is immediately to the right of the prominent north rib of the peak. Go up and right for six pitches of 5.6 and 5.7, reaching the ridge about 100 feet left of the summit block."
LocationAfter reaching Precipice Lake walk around it on the right and go up onto a hump of granite until you see the prominent north rib.
Descent: walk down class 2 into the Big Arroyo and around to Kaweah Gap.
or... At class 3, it is also possible to top out, head down towards the Big Arroyo and hop over the NE ridge of Eagle Scout and drop back to Precipice Lk. Little bit shorter this way, but involves some route finding.
