Ascent Trip Report

From Horseshoe lake. Traversed around the SW side of the lake and ascended the boulder field to the loose gully below the saddle, then more boulder hopping to the base of the summit block. Steep and fun with impressive views and some interesting class 3 moves for shorter climbers. The last 15 feet to the true summit is airy, and those who are affected by exposure may want a rope.

1hr 20 minutes up, 45 minutes down.
