The route stays to the N side of the ridge (class 3-4). Climb a short step to a rocky point and descend 6' at a minor notch. Ascend a face on the N side of the steep step in the ridge, then follow the crest to the top. The summit (6,057') is on the E end. Alternative: Ascend a 60' face on the N. side (low 5th class) Good in early season (snow, 1,500' glissade on hike out). Be ready for bushwhacking in late season, or take the Cave Ridge approach. The climb itself is short, generally on rock of good quality. Some variations are possible that can increase the difficulty of the climb. Commonwealth Basin approach has horrendous brush and steep scree/talus after snow gone.
