Description

From Army Pass (you'll need to follow either the Army Pass Trail or the New Army Pass Trail first), follow the rim of the cirque toward the south over scree and gravel. Scramble over granite boulders to the summit. Though the navigating will be uneven, the slopes are gentle, and the distance is relatively short.
