Ascent Trip ReportAn unmapped but well beaten trail goes from the south shore of the lake down to the SW through meadows and forest. It then turns to the NW and N, eventually crossing over a ridge until the tame south slopes of Hoffmann. Then up to the saddle that is E of the summit. From there any number of boot paths and very minor rocks to clamber over will get you to the summit.
