My route to Hammerhorn Mountain from the Soldier Ridge TH 6,050')--7:00A) followed the Soldier Ridge TR past Johnson HQ to the Solomon Peak Tr, climbed to Solomon Peak (HP of the Hammerhorn Ridge--9:00A)), then a traverse along the alpine ridge to Hammerhorn Mountain (11:00A), about 1 mile south of Solomon Mountain.
