“A quick, steep descent with easy access bootpack laps and inspiring views.”— Ben Hogan
From Lake Dorothy, this line can be seen almost directly west. Take the hiking trail up the most mellow upslope just northwest of Lake Dorothy before heading south along the Sawtooth, getting good views in three directions. Stay on the Sawtooth until a short down climb becomes present. This is a good spot to boot up and begin descent, or keep going for more aggressive lines down to the lake.
Some obvious rocks might be present during spring time due to melt, but enough snow will stay in good years for a nice run down to the lake. Lap back up to the top via trail and scramble.
