South Ridge, Class 2
From the 7,780-foot connecting saddle with Peak 8151, scramble north through scattered, charred timber and skirt (or climb over) a rocky ridge outcrop to reach the small, bare summit of Peak 8594. The summit has no cairn and no loose rocks with which to build one.
West Ridge, Class 2
From the summit, descend southwest then west then south on the meandering ridge crest to reach the 8,260-foot connecting saddle with Peak 8620. The west ridge is open scrub and gravel and goes quickly. This saddle concludes the second leg of today’s 3-peak journey. Peak 8620 is up next.
