From Handies PeakPosted On:

Long but faster than the distance would indicate. The initial descent off Handies is steep and loose on superchoss kitty litter garbage, and as you descend the first major drop in the ridge you'll have to do some Class 2+, arguably Class 3 rock that is steep and incredibly loose. This section is a hundred feet or so and it cannot be stated enough how loose the rock here is. Take caution! Beyond that there are no difficulties. From the low point with 13,795 there's a faint trail through the talus slope that will take you to just below 13,795. It's well worth finding this trail as it undoubtedly saves tons of time and effort sidehilling on otherwise crappy talus. The summit block itself is kind of steep and loose but not difficult at all. We continued to "Campbell Creek Peak" so I can't speak to the north ridge descent that many people take.
