Description

The first part of the skin is a bushwhack until you reach the Kettle Crest Trail at the second scree field. Follow the trail through the east bowl, before heading up through the East Arm.

Again, follow the trail until the saddle between Snow and Sherman Peaks. Depart from the trail, cutting through the saddle, while steadily climbing the meadowed west face of Snow Peak until the top.
