The route from Ypsilon to Chiquita is finally where Mummy Madness begins to get easy. Route finding is generally obvious and the trail segments up Ypsilon difficult to follow, so just head towards Chiquita on low angle tundra, scree, talus, and small boulders. There shouldn't be any scrambling at all on the route. From the Ypsilon/Chiquita saddle ascend the obvious easy slopes up Chiquita. To continue on to Chapin descend the obvious route to the saddle between the two peaks and then up a nice trail to Chapin's summit. Either descend the trail again or traverse west across grass and talus and then descend north to the trail when it becomes reasonable to do so. Take the trail to Chapin Creek trailhead. Hopefully you have a shuttle vehicle parked here. We did not so we hitched a ride. It took us about half an hour and dozens of passing vehicles before someone finally stopped and graciously gave us a ride all the way back to Lawn Lake trailhead. Thank you to Vanessa and Don for the lift, the beers, the margaritas, and the camaraderie. You guys rock!
