Head up crow pass trail and finish the switch backs. After the trail levels out a bit and you start hitting scree cut off trail and cross river. Side hill over left to the next prominent valley and head up screeslope. This drops you at a pocket glacier. Cross glacier and find a prominent gully that leads up to the right of the peak. Gully is full of loose rock with solid bits underneath. Might want a rope for parts on the descent. Top out the gully with a crux at the top. Turn left and follow the crumbly ridge to the summit.
