This is the only 13,000 foot peak in the southern Wind River Range.

Most of the ascent is pretty easy. The last few hundred feet are the most challenging in my opinion. There is a lot of scrambling and climbing over large boulders. The views from the summit are spectacular! Don't forget to sign the log book in the Nalgene bottle!
