We will hike the Herman Gulch trail to Herman Lake, then climb north to the beginning on the east ridge, then hike west to the top ridge.

At this point, it is a short Class 3 scramble to the summit.   The return path is the reverse of the forward path.

Participants can stop and wait for the others to return from the summit if they feel uncomfortable with the scramble.

Climbing helmets will be worn by everyone climbing past Herman Lake.
