Milo at Warm Lake during sunrise. Gilbert summit is the knob at top/center-right. Snow-free route follows ridge the entire way sometimes switching sides for the first mile, then stays above or beside the two snow fields top/center-left,up through a stand of small trees, then around the SSW trending summit ridge (2022-09-21).

The easiest most efficient way to access the Klickton Ridge begins on an obvious path between those 2 trees dead center of the photo just past the lake. Go up the short gray sand/rock/scree area beyond those 2 trees, across a flat basin area and up directly up the rock/scree heading for the middle of the lighter green patch of heather you see center. There is a well defined path there (2022-09-21). Photo by Erik Levy.
