Description

From the Monarch Pass parking area, switchback up the initial ascent - often there are tracks to follow. Traverse just below the ridgeline until you find the line down you want.

Great views off the backside, although the ridge is often windblown and rocky. You'll hit a powerline road at the bottom that will bring you back to the parking area.
