DRIVING ROUTE 3

HIKING ROUTE 3

Note: The ascent up this last segment above the 7800' saddle includes a step on a bush growing out of a somewhat exposed rocky cliff. Most slender hikers can bypass this step. If one prefers to do so, stop short of the bush and climb down about 10' veering to the left. There is a small cave on the right. The ceiling of the cave has a narrow 9" slot. Hikers can continue up (or return) through this Worm Hole to bypass the bush step. The Worm Hole is around 7900' elevation.
