Ascent Trip Report

Suunto Ambit 2 reported about 19 miles and 7500ft of gain via the Dome trail. Stick to the Snowhawk mountain side of the pass, away from Kanchee, to avoid lots of low brush as you move through the pass. There looks like an old Jeep trail or something when heading towards Snowhawk from the Dome trail and you should take that and traverse over to the pass. We came back following a fairly established trail that hugged the base of Kanchee through the pass and we ended up walking through endless bushes and hidden streams. There is also a temporary bridge placed across the stream maybe half a mile from gaining the Snowhawk creek trail from the pass that is not mentioned in any beta I've read. This really wasn't a great way to gain the spine up to the tarn below Temptation as we had to sidehill the whole way after the stream crossing. The best way is to follow Snowhawk all the way past the cabin and just jumping the stream, which is the way we came down. 12 hours car to car with a good bit of time spent at the peak and cabin.
