Find Boulder Pass trail N of campsite and ascend toward Boulder Pass. At 5,800', climb directly up fall line to left side of pass ( 1.5 hours). From left side of pass, climb 50' up ridge toward Peak 7242, then follow a rising traverse across the basin E of Peak 7242 crossing the NE ridge at 6,700'. Turn W and traverse toward glacier (30 minutes). Climb with rising traverse from bottom S (left) edge of glacier towards center of glacier. Ascend up and slightly left to miss large crevasse, then head right (W) to large basin at 7,600'. Head WNW toward false summit. Cross ridge S of false summit and traverse slope to major gully. Ascend gully to ridge and follow ridge W to summit. The glacier breaks up by late July. Be prepared to fight off black flies at base camp.
