After doing this one with Sirena a few weeks ago I wanted to give it a try from the South/West side. It appeared to involve more climbing but looked to be a more direct route to the summit. Today after hiking the Spine Mike and I gave it a go. At first we encountered some large cairns so we figured we were on to a clean route. Soon they went away and all bets were off. We tried a couple routes with limited success and then bingo we found a clean line up. Reaching the top was just as spectacular as last time. For a short trip to the top this one really packs a punch. It also delivers views that make it every bit worth the drive out.

The way down was only .6 of a mile since we now had figured things out. The other side is a bit easier to go up and I would probably recommend it for most. This side would be the shortest route to the top however. Either side is a winner in my book!
