The route from West Willow Creek Trailhead to Point 13,300 is entirely Class 1 trail or Class 1 off-trail grass. The exact cutoff from the Colorado Trail through the willows is a matter of taste, as the slopes are broad and open. There's a large cairn to the west/climber's right once you reach the summit plateau but it is very obviously at the low point of the plateau, let alone the actual summit bump, which is the start of the ridge to Point 13,180 C. If traversing along the ridge to Point 13,180 C and Point 13,155 be aware the rock on the ridge is exceptionally, dangerously loose.
