Pretty easy route finding all-in-all. In the trees for most of it, and the trees are tight.

There is a gate at Chisholm closing the road to Palisade Falls off. Depending on the time of year you go, you may be able to drive a mile further up the road.

Need to Know

All in all, pretty straightforward. The trickiest part is probably deciding when to cross the drainage, and start heading west. You should wait longer than you may think you need to wait.

Description

Park at Chisholm. Start skinning up the Palisade Falls road. Just before you cross a bridge, there is a trail going up to the right. Follow that trail up into the Flanders drainage. The trail eventually peters out.

Stay on the left side of the drainage most of the way up until it opens up a bit, and levels off. From there, head to the west, and start climbing the main bowl.
