Steve Mandella, Margo Mandella, and Bruce Dunham climbed Peak 10536 and Atlas Peak together as a loop route. Read about their route using this link.

Western Approach, Class 2+

Using the ascent of Peak 11536 described on the loop route page, and descending the same route, would be a steep climb with good footing. If you climb the outcrops versus skirting them, the climb might be considered a low Class 3.
