This strenuous day climb includes a formal trail approach, following by a climber’s trail with a scree climb and short class 2-3 knife-edge pitch near the summit of the 35th highest peak in Washington.

Start at the Robinson Creek Trailhead, elevation 2560 feet, and hike the wide  Robinson Creek - South Trail for 2.8 miles to the Beauty Creek Trail junction, elevation 3560 feet, just beyond the bridge over Beauty Creek.

Turn right (northeast) on the unmarked Beauty Creek Trail and follow it for 1.5 miles, as it climbs somewhat steeply up the Beauty Creek valley, staying northwest of the creek. Just after crossing a major tributary of Beauty Creek, elevation 5260 feet, turn left (northwest) onto a climber’s trail that works up the steep meadow, then shallows into a secondary valley before steepening to reach a tarn, elevation 6750 feet.

From the tarn, it is a climber’s route, initially up the scree slope to the north and then 1.2 miles along the ridge over the false summits with a short class 2-3 knife edge climb shortly before the true summit.
