“A moderate climb mostly above treeline.”— J. Bella
From the top of Corner Chute on Highline Ridge, continue southwards; when the ski area is open, there's a gate here that may be closed. Follow an ascending traverse on the west side of a rolling knob, then head slightly downhill to a saddle. Stay on the ridge as it contours up through the trees. You'll pass a small cabin, then the route opens onto the alpine ridge and rises above treeline. From here the ridge steepens and most of the climb is straightforward with a couple steeper pitches as you ascend above the K Chutes. The ridge levels out near the top and gradually heads southeast towards the summit.
