Hike up the Coyote creek trail. The trail makes easy access to alpine. We made a basecamp at a small lake (54.949005,-128.254619). At 4am we left basecamp aiming for an easy ridge to the west. Rock was all loose and very sharp. Eventually hit a knife ridge, for safety you might want to bring a rope just for this short pitch. There are a couple pitons hammered in from previous ascents. We decided not to use the rope. After knife ridge the route finding is a bit less obvious. First we stayed high on ridge, but realized it was easier to go down about 15m and follow ledges. Made a small rap to get to ledges. Main ridge is straightforward. Some snow on ridge but only a slight incline makes easy fast going. Eventually theres a small scramble to the snow summit.
The descent was same as ascent except we use a large snow gully to connect back to the basecamp.... To see the full trip report you must login as a paid member. Use the Login Page. (message p3)
