The Climb

From the Eighteenmile Creek Trailhead (McGinty Trailhead on some maps), hike north then east on a jeep road that heads east up Pass Creek. Follow this old 2-track to its end at about 8,720 feet in a dry gully. Scramble east up this gully to reach the Continental Divide at a ridge saddle at 9,592 feet (map). Follow the ridge left/north then northeast to the summit.
