Peak 12,182 from a winter camp at Lower Treasure L...

Description 

A very good scenic climb on a solid ridge, which is a lot better in early season.

Gain the foot of the ridge easily from the south side of Lower Treasure Lakes and head up slabs and small steps, pass the broad blocky step on the left (crux) and then up to gain the narrow ridge which is easily followed to the summit - here there's a fabulous view of Mount Goode and the peaks running northwards.

Alternatively one can gain the ridge by following the faint trail to Upper Treasure Lakes then cutting off left and up the slabs when convenient.

Location 

The ridge starts easily at the southern side of Lower Treasure Lakes

Protection 

None - ice axe and crampons when there's snow.
