Due to the beginning of this route's close proximity to the highway, it can be climbed in a single day, taking the average party approximately 10 hours car to car. When beginning at the trail head, walk down the trail until you see what appears to be a vertical rock wall. Follow the scrambly path over the wall and continue towards climber's left towards the obvious snow slope. Rope up at the snow and begin climbing.
The steepest section is around the middle of this slope, which comes to about 65-70 degrees. Depending on what you are comfortable simulclimbing, this slope is around 0-3 pitches. Keep moving up until you find yourself on a plateau. Orient yourself to the summit and climb another 0-2 pitches of around 45-55 degrees (again, depending on your simulclimbing confidence).
You can downclimb all the way back to the first snow slope with relative ease. Rapping the steepest sections will take 2 full rope lengths.
