Overview

Non-technical summit with great views.

Description

Follow the north ridge and the broad Francis Lake drainage to about 10,200 feet, then aim west around the north ridge to get to Rock Creek Lake. Follow the road for 3 miles to the Sno-Park.

The steep couloirs off of the headwall just east of the north ridge between 12,900 and 11,900 feet can provide excellent skiing if the conditions are right.
