Ascend the pass between Sunlight Spire and Windom and climb the northwest facing wall up to the Summit. I use this approach when we summit from the Grizzly Gulch Area. Awesome climb, tough on the way down. Class 3+

I was only 13 and my father lead us up the Widowmaker approach from Grizzly Gulch. An electrical storm chased us off the summit and sparks between rocks slowed our descent towards twin lakes area. Later that day we bagged Jupiter and could have easily hit Grizzly on our way by but darkness kept us off. Returned to camp after midnight, with no lights it was very interesting. Quite an epic
