I am posting some additional mountaineering community beta. It qualifies as quite an excellent way of ascending this Northern Sawatch Range pinnacle via my indicated rejuvenating, relaxing line. I highly recommend our chosen path. It is another beautiful classic. Understand health-minded city-side training does certainly assist when handling these jaunts.

I never utilize, or rely upon, GPS. I humbly reflect on the quality Ranked Front Range 13er with a great, motivated, and nice friend, too.
