From Twilight PeakPosted On:

Somewhat involved from Twilight Peak. Instead of following the ridge direct we dropped slightly west and traversed north under the ridge crest. A steep dirt and rock gully appeared but we stayed above it and continued on exposed, loose Class 2+ to Class 3 terrain until we were near the eastern edge of ridge. Instead of dropping g directly into the massive notch on the ridge we continued over a rib and down on Class 2+ terrain. The notch descent was Class 2+/Class 3, very steep, and very loose, but not too long. We squeezed past a big boulder at the bottom then 15-20 feet up Class 3 ledges directly to the right, which eventually opened into basic hiking terrain to the summit. To descend we went down towards Twilight and took steep dirt/tslus/grass to the lake in the basin then contoured around and back to Crater Lake.
