"Cataract Peak"  
Condition Updates  
Route: From \"Tundra Top\".
Posted On: 2021-08-22, By: supranihilest
Info: Descend from "Tundra Top" to the saddle with "Cataract Peak". There is a trail on the far eastern side but it's steep and extremely loose. In between the two peaks is pleasant tundra. There's an obvious trail up "Cataract"'s south face. The bottom part to the switchback is steep and loose and tiring, but once past the switchback the trail eases in angle and effort. Take it to a small saddle and then hike climber's left/west to the summit. Since I took an uncommon route up either return to the Continental Divide trail by going back over "Tundra Top", or if you took my route up, descend back down the trail to the large bowl between the two peaks and descend the drainage back down the waterfall and to the Cataract Gulch trail.

Route: from Tundra Top

Info: There's still snow in the gully if you wish to ascend straight up the face. This snow was compact in the morning. No traction needed to cross, but later in the day might be needed. Snow avoidable coming down from Tundra Top.
