Description

From the Sno-Park at about 8,900 feet, follow the road for about 3 miles. At about 9,700 feet, turn left and pass along the east side of Rock Creek Lake. Follow the summer trail around the north ridge of the peak. Ascend the broad valley along the north ridge until you gain the ridge at a broad saddle at about 12,000 feet. Follow the ridge to the summit.
