On the hike up this route, we walked through the canyon and was unaware that there was an old trail on the left side of the canyon until we found it on the way down. There were some steep areas, especially the last stretch going toward the "thimble" and around to the saddle. Once at the saddle, we just moved in the direction of the peak, having to weave in and out of some of the rock formations. The bushwhack always seems to add a lot more time than if there was a trail. I find that a lot of these time estimates are too low. Anyway, it was a great hike and it was nice to learn about the history of how it was named and even saw the log entry from the son of the person who named this peak.
