This is overall an easy route - if you follow it correctly. Don't get sucked into the full north slopes. If you find yourself on talus anywhere on the route except the top one or two hundred feet, you're in the wrong spot! If you find yourself on steep, loose Class 2 talus and climbing towards rotten, Class 2+ outcrops, you're in the wrong spot! The majority of this route is Class 1 trail to the cutoff, and then Class 1 grass to within a couple hundred feet of the summit where it turns into easy Class 2 talus. You essentially want to climb up the basin that makes up the west ridge of Organ to San Luis Peak. Descend the same way you came up unless you're taking the west ridge to San Luis or the east ridge back to the trailhead.
