Ascent Trip Report

We wanted to try a different way up to Mummy's Nose. The standard route goes up the north gully to a saddle and then up the southwest ridge to the summit. We started up a very old forest road from Deer Creek Road and followed it until it ended then we went up a gully to the main northeast ridge. Once on the ridge we noticed a use trail with some cairns indicating other people had done the same route. We followed the ridge up on the southeast side of the spine until there was a break near the summit at which point we crossed over the rocky knife edge of the ridge to the northwest side and followed a use trail up to the summit. We had to go around a large patch of snow since we didn't bring any crampons or microspikes with us. On the descent we went straight down the high forest where the ground was soft dirt and pine needles allowing for a very pleasant descent. We followed the forest into a drainage which connected to the forest road we ascended.
