From Ship Island Lake [(H)(22.214.171.124)(a.2) ] , walk S to theunnamed lake just below 8,100 ft. Follow the E side of the lake and bushwhack up the drainage to L. 8,395. From the L. 8,395 outlet, head N to the ridge S of the pond at 8,502 ft. Once on the crest, turn E and exercise your route finding skills by working up through a series of cliffs (YDS 3) to the broad slopes above.
