Alpine Scramble - Stevens Peak

surprisingly fun snow trip

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

quick and dirty route info: hike up to near unicorn peak summit block, walk ridge between summit and and boundary and take first available spot to descend ene.  descend directly to ~6550 and then do descending traverse se aiming for the base of the east shoulder of boundary. then take easy terrain to boundary/stevens saddle.  then level traverse e (on s side of ridge) at 5800' to get around below rock buttress and then ascend to stevens sw ridge which easily takes you to summit. 

easy class 2, moderate, but sometimes exposed, snow slopes. 

many other options would work, including traversing from the boundary/stevens on n side of ridge ~5800' around large rock and then up steep snow to saddle on ridge and then follow stevens sw ridge to summit.
