Profile Peak/Peak 8615 Traverse, Class 2
The easiest way to reach this peak is via a traverse from Profile Peak. Of course, getting to Profile Peak is not easy. Everything is relative in the mountains. The traverse between the two peaks is a ridge walk and there are sections of old trail in places.
