An easy snow and rock climb with spectacular scenery. Helmets, boots, crampons and an ice axe are all the gear that is needed.
From Wing Lake, the South Ridge is the left skyline of Black Peak. Go around the right side of the lake before ascending snow and scree slopes to the col in the ridge. Head upwards, eventually moving slightly left into a loose third class gully. Eventually, you will top out the gully, scramble up and do the final exciting ridge traverse to the summit.
