The PCT section follows easy rolling terrain for 3.5 miles to the cairn marking the left turn up the North ridge route. The trail gives way to a moderate scramble a mile or so up the ridge. The summit block rises about 450’ from the ridge. The 3 pitch climb requires technical climbing ability and equipment. Great views! A climbers trail descends 1400’ across the steep scree field on the west face to the PCT for a 5 mile hike back to TH. Or you can descend along the ridge route the way you came up. Make sure to have plenty of light because the ridge route is sketchier downhill than on the way up. No water along the route
