We began climbing around noontime and sure enough, there was no need to rope up. The moderate angle - 60 degrees - and consolidated snow made this climb a straightforward proposition. At the top of the couloir we left our day packs and scrambled up third class rock to the summit. We reached the summit at 2:30 pm.
The weather was beautiful and we could see for miles in every direction. After retrieving our packs we hiked down scree slopes on the south side of the mountain. We arrived back at the parking lot at 6 pm.
