At 12,060', Big Agnes is about a 1600' rise from Mica Lake where we launched most of our climbs in the area from 1968-1975. We climbed several scrambling routes from the west and along the south ridge. The most striking features, however, are on the east side as in Legs Macgillicutty's excellent photo.

Getting There 

There are myriad ways to get there. We accessed this from Mica Lake or headed for the saddle between Big Agnes and Peak 11777 for the south ridge.
