Description

An easy skin up (30-60 min) a gradual slope takes you through some pines and up to the Bald Spot. You can drop in the trees to the right before you reach the summit or pick one of many lines once you are above the tree line. Traverse across to the west for some great snow and good vertical. Any line you choose will end at the same drainage which leads back in bounds to the birds of prey area.
