A short scramble from Gem Lake. The turn off from Gem Lake is not marked, but there is an obvious trail on the NE side of the lake that leads to some campsites. Past the campsites there is a boot path leading up the east side of Wright Mtn. I lost the path in a few places once reaching the talus slopes but there were a few cairns to keep me heading in the right direction. Great 360° views from the top including Chair and Kaleetan Peaks towering over Snow and Gem Lakes.
