Description

Start at the Luther Pass parking lot (which doesn't require a Snowpark permit!) and head straight out across the meadow towards the false summit which you can see in front of you from the meadow. Climb that southeast face and then once on top you can ski on the more north facing side of a gully that will lead you back down to the meadow on the Waterhouse Peak Descent.
