“A moderately difficult route rising to stunning views of surrounding mountains and canyons.”— Tom Robson
From the shelf head southwest, cross over North Fork Granite Creek, and the trail will eventually start gaining Game Creek Pass in earnest. This last part of trail is incredibly steep and heads straight up the fall line until you reach the top.
The view from the pass is incredible as you're completely above treeline, thus the remote Jedediah Smith Wilderness, unadulterated. From here you can access Game Creek Trail, which will take you all the way down to US 33, near Victor, ID.
