Description 

Although it's somewhat lost in views from the east between hulking Mt. Audubon and striking Mt. Toll, Paiute has a 1,500-foot northeast face, a rugged north ridge, and a fun spring snow climb and ski descent on the south face.

Getting There 

Approach from the Mitchell Lake Trailhead over Mt. Audubon or via the trail from Coney Flats.
