The boot-pack climbs along the climber's right of the trees while the skin track climbs along the climber's left of the trees. The two merge again after roughly 350 yards at around 11700 feet. Depending on your desired desired descent route you can either turn right (North) to arrive at the top of lines like The Plunge and Lift Gulley, or you can continue to climb in the same direction and reach the "upper west weather station" at 11900 feet.
Wide gentle slopes at around 20 degrees or less.
