Description

Approximately 7 miles up the road in Big Cottonwood Canyon, park and head up the Mill A North drainage.

This is a winding gully that works its way up towards Mount Raymond.

Follow the gully for several miles until it widens and opens up.

From here cut off to the left/W and head towards the ridge.

Once you're on the ridge continue working your way along until you top out above Maxfield Basin.
