Bridal Peak is by far the easiest of this group. I technically started this peak from "T 12", but the directions are the same. Stay in the basin Columbine Lake is housed in (don't attempt to go into Bridal Veil Basin descending from "T 12"; it's all cliffs) and head in the general direction of Bridal Peak across tundra and occasional rock. Bridal's south ridge has a trail to the summit. Return to Columbine Lake trail, do not descend into Mill Creek drainage.
