Description

A steep open glade, False Summit starts just before the first Southback gate.

Access by hiking the Throne until you reach the first flat spot.

False Summit starts here.

A few small alpine firs dot the upper slope early season.

This slope quickly becomes less steep.

Watch for the cedar bench a third of the way down, which is steep and often rocky and might require mandatory air.

Veer to the right or left above the trees to avoid this area.
