“Awesome views and access to epic lines, what more could you want?”— Tom Robson
Due to the extremely high traffic of this area, there will undoubtedly be many ascent tracks to take. Generally follow the tracks up and depending on what you're looking to ski, head that direction.
From the top, you'll get incredible panoramic views of both Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker.
