From camp, follow a climber's trail NW until it disappears into a large gully (about .5 hour). Follow the gully to upper meadows and ascend a gully or avalanche fan as it bends around to the right (N). Continue N until reaching easy scrambling to the right (E) leading to the ridge line. Turn left (N) and head uphill, looking for a large gully to the left of the ridge. Work into this gully and continue N (steep snow) until under the summit (on the right). Look for cairns marking an easy path to the summit (actually, any gully will work). This climb can be done enjoyably in early season, when the approach gully and slopes are snow covered. However, the route has significant avalanche exposure, so consider the snow conditions and the weather. The snow in the upper gully can be quite hard (crampons). Beware of rockfall (and other parties) near the summit, helmets recommended. This area sustains heavy use, and the favored camp sites could be taken. The climb can be done as a long day trip.
