Route: East Ridge
Posted On: 2021-09-18, By: ScottLovesRMNP
Info: Really fun route, and a great intro to class 3, as the climbing is not terribly exposed and the handholds are excellent! Once on the false summit, it's a bit more of a chore than it looks to traverse over the true summit. The route drops down a ways on the west side of the summit ridge, mainly following grassy segments. Cairns are few and far between, but you shouldn't need to do anything harder than Class 2+ or easy Class 3 to work your way over to where you can climb up to the true summit. From Lower Sand Creek Lake, this took me 3 hours roundtrip and I wasn't going terribly fast (this was the day after I did Tijeras --> Milwaukee --> Pico Aislado --> 13,020, so I was pretty sore!

Info: Music is dry from Milwaukee Mountain and all snow is easily avoidable to attain east ridge from Lower Sand Creek Lake. There are plenty of annoying snow drifts below the lake down to the valley before linking up with Music Pass trail (which is totally dry up to pass). I attached a photo of Tijeras, too, to show the access gullies, which are still snow-filled.
