John reports:  “You can most easily climb this from Golden Lake. The North Ridge is Class 4. The South Ridge is Class 2+/3 depending upon your choice of route. If you are coming from Sawtooth, you need to go either high or low on the West Side (cliffs in between) to gain the saddle on the south. Then it’s fairly easy. ‘Even a dog could do it’ and she did.”
