Description:

Starting from North Halfmoon Creek Trailhead, if you miss the cairn and turn-off, you'll follow a superb canyon north, pass by several alpine lakes, then ramble up a long, steep scree pile to the west side of the North Massive summit bulge. Walk south on the Massive saddle to the true summit, then descend off the col to the southwest slopes and back to North Halfmoon Creek. Class III, 12 miles R/T.
