Description 

The route starts at Tower Lake and is off trail, although you may see footprints here and there. It is mostly 2nd class, with a bit of 3rd near the summit. The summit register shows a lot of traffic.

Location 

Northwest Face. Start from Tower Lake, stay left of the lake and aim for Tower Pass. Just before you top out at the pass, climb out on the left side. Aim for the ridge above the scrub brush. Then head to the NW chute. To descend, retrace your steps

Protection 

None req.
