Ascent Trip Report

Easy hike up the Trail Canyon trail to the junction of the North Loop trail. Head West on the North Loop Trail, and look for the tree with the "M" and an arrow pointing up the steep scree slope after a left switchback. The scree slope is quite steep and trekking poles are a boon here (even though I don't like them much). Scree slope goes from 10,300' to 10,900' in about 0.20 miles, and is the crux of the route. Once at the top, veer East and head up a ridge following a faint path. There are easy 3rd Class climbing routes that become apparent, but one can skirt them and find a walk up if desired. More trail leads to gullies that head up to the mesa-like summit area. I took the one with the big dead tree in it, normally a 3rd Class climb (head to the right at the fork). I chose to climb the headwall in there instead for a little more challenge, probably very low 5th Class. Once again, a walk up in a steep gully can be found by heading North past the gully with the big dead tree trunk.
