Standard route is well cairned and easy to follow upwards from large cairn on Blanca Trail, to below the white mine tails, then angling up through cliffs and then straight up to the ridgeline. Keep looking back as you ascend to remember the standard route. On the way down, you will see cairns corresponding to ski routes, standard route, ridge traverse and lower traverse to Blanca. Beautiful streams, lakes and summit views.
