I have successfully climbed this peak twice with groups of high school aged campers. My first ascent was in 2005 and my second was in 2008. I had a chance to summit in 2007 but sickness ended our wilderness experience in the Winds a few days early.

Most of the ascent is pretty easy. The last few hundred feet are the most challenging in my opinion. There is a lot of scrambling and climbing over large boulders. The views from the summit are spectacular! Don't forget to sign the log book in the Nalgene bottle!
