Ascent Trip Report

Rick Chval, Al Craun and I day hiked up the trail from Onion Valley to Robinson Lake, then went cross country up to University Pass, the last 800' or so of elevation gain requiring an ice ax and crampons. Once at the pass, we followed the peak's class 2 southeast ridge to the top, staying on the south side of the ridge most of the way.
