hike to avalanche lake and follow the dike at the south(?) end up class 3 and 4 climbing (sorry no class 3-4 option in difficulty part) the class 4 section is maybe 50 feet up the main waterfall part. stay in the dike as long as practical to avoid the steeper slab. go out on the slab (class 3) then follow it to the summit of Colden!

jogged/hiked/climbed it with a friend in 5 hours 38 minutes car to car from South Meadows. It should go in under 5 hours for me with training and more familiarity with it now. One of my favorite climbs out there.
