McCauley Peak  
Condition Updates  
Route: Northwest Ridge from Hazel Lake
Posted On: 2021-07-21, By: supranihilest
Info: From camp at Hazel Lake we traversed around the north side of the lake and then followed an obvious, huge grass ramp to the Grizzly Peak C/McCauley saddle. The ridge to McCauley begins as Class 2 grass before turning to Class 2 talus and boulders, and as one nears the summit Class 2+ to Class 3 scrambling on excellent granite blocks. To keep the route at Class 2+ traverse under the difficulties on the southwest side of the ridge. The final summit scramble is likewise Class 2+ to Class 3 depending on exact line. Route finding is generally minimal and obvious, exposure is moderate.
