Access

Park Creek Road, FS-140 and the Trail Creek Loop Trail, FST-126 [(B)(1)(a) Page 242]. The Trail Creek Loop Trail, FST-126 has not been maintained in many years. Furthermore, trail is not in the location shown on the FS topographic map. See the map below. The tread is easy to follow until roughly 9,000 feet. After that point, there are cairns marking the route until treeline. After you reach treeline, make your way to the saddle on the peak’s northwest ridge. Expert route finding skills are recommended.

Northwest Ridge, Class 2 or 3

See the route description in the book.
