low 5th Class 250m (ll) The standard and easiest route up Elkhorn and main descent from other routes. Approach the West Basin by either north-west or south-west routes to the top centre of the West Basin. Enter the bottom of a wide gully capped with a huge chockstone. Take a tiny ramp on the right side of the gully in to a little cave and chimney up, above the chockstone. Continue scrambling direct up the gully system with short steep low 5th class rock steps and snow/scree sections. Head left to a boulder field and clamber up this to the summit. Take care to note the route on the way up for the descent. FA: Unknown
