Tony Tennessee closing in on the summit
A good day out in the backcountry - travelling through some quite remote terrain to an exposed, but easy, route.
From Lower Sphinx Lake hike up over benches and past lakes 'till beneath the west face of the peak. Climb the chute terminating left of the summit, towards the end traverse right and scramble/climb to the summit.
Descend the route.
Solo 3rd Class
