Description 

A fun scramble to a peak with a great view - very easy to make it harder. Scramble up a steep gully to the left of a creek, then scree to a notch, in early season snow can now be followed up to the col at the start of the South Ridge.

Climb to the top of the first tower/peaklet, the crux is the steep rock before the top of this - and the easiest way lies to the left. Traverse the knife edge on the west side for a short distance, then gain a shoulder, it's an easy hike to the summit from there.

Location 

Approached from Long Lake, follow the west shoreline until you see a creek coming down a steep gully, there is scree at the top of it just before a notch.

Protection 

Solo - ice axe and crampons in early season.
