Description:

A classic 4th class scramble on which many parties may end up placing a bit of pro. From basin below Nesakwatch Spires, scramble up a 3rd class gully (snow in early season) then follow the easy ridge to the base of the false summit. Traverse around the N side of false summit on ledges then climb to the ridge crest between the false summit and main summit up a wide gully with broad ledges and short flakes. Finish to the main summit up a short offwidth in a wonderfully exposed position. May require a couple rappels on descent.
