Update

A fantastic line off the east ridge of the Citadel AKA "Snoopy Tail".

Need to Know

Approach via Herman Lake Trail and continue up the drainage when the trail turns right up a hill (north). Gain the ridge line to your left (south) and continue up to a nice, flat spot (balcony) before the rocky, more difficult, summit.

Description

A fun line in the alpine environment off the east ridge line of the Citadel AKA "Snoopy - Tail". This line starts only 100-150 feet vertically below the top of the notch on the Citadel. It gets sun so you can harvest some corn earlier in the morning.
