“An easy climb on the Colorado Trail up to Searle Pass, then a nice summit push.”— Nick Wilder
You can also shortcut this and take a steeper line straight up to Searle Pass. Option 1 is to turn around here and enjoy turns right back to the hut.
Or to continue from the pass, look east and you'll see an obvious broad ridge. There are many small cliffs/rock walls to avoid, but just meander around to keep your angle reasonable.
You can ski down the way you came, or for much steeper and longer climbing, head north on the Point 12,596 route.
