“This ascent/approach gets you to the summit of one the closest peaks to the Lick Creek Yurts.”— Cody Feuz
The only real trouble to watch for is the cornice, (in some places dangerously large) that follows the ridge to the peak. Give it plenty of room on the climb.
Because of the proximity to the yurts, the skin track to the ridge is usually well set and easy to follow, (unless you get one of those great central Idaho snow storms the night before). This access route gives you a large number of alternate descents.
