This mountain has the lot of color to it and is different then other peaks.
I had to be back home early on Sunday so didn't have a choice of peaking on Sunday. Chris, Mehran and I decided to to go to the peak, Jason and Matt decided to relax and peak Sunday morning. We took the North ridge (east) approach. But instead of going to Split-Prater saddle, we went up a chute before the saddle.
Meanwhile, Matt was concerned about getting this truck out from trailhead so while Jason went for a short hike, Matt packed up and went back.
Jason peaked solo on Sunday morning starting at 5 and peaked at 9. Chris and I headed down around 8:15am and reached trailhead by 11:45am. Mehran and Jason came down later in the afternoon.
The trail is pretty much scree and talus and that makes it a tough hike.
