Ascent Trip ReportThe ridge SE from the summit (and most all the way from where it bends around to the south where the trail crosses it, for that matter) is generally a mess. Assuming you can find a route up the steep slope from Happy Lake to just SE of the top, that would probably be best. On the way down I actually contoured around the basin on the east side of the ridge and crossed over to the Happy Lake side near the 5200' saddle and then up to meet the Happy Lake Trail. Not great but better than the slow-going on the ridge itself.
