Ascent Trip Report

Took Grizzly Gulch Trail from Redcloud parking lot towards Handies. At about 12100', left the trail and traversed right to follow the drainage up to the bowl beneath the saddle on the S ridge of Whitecross. Staying mostly on green, I gained the saddle by a small hump. From here the ridge walk to the summit was easy and colorful, with bits of climber trail to follow. On the summit, a piece of steel cable but no register. Rapid direct mostly-green descent to the trail required more attention than expected.
