West Ridge, Class 2
After a couple of miles, leave the trail at roughly 7,800 feet and gain the West Ridge of Peak 10450 at 10,150 feet. Turn east and follow the Class 2 West Ridge to the summit. Either descend via the same route or continue east to Peak 10446. The ridge between these two peaks is Class 3.
