Thanks to Andy Boos for the photo.

Per Andy on his Flicker album: Started at the Twin Lakes trailhead.  The climb involved lots of class 3 scrambling, with one long pitch of roped climbing up a chimney. We rappelled three times on the way down. 

Good report:

Weather/conditions/smoke will dictate.  Please research this climb before requesting sign up.
