Info: Muddy, soupy trail in many spots once you leave the Holy Cross City Rd, up until the lower Seven Sisters lakes. Gaining the highest lake was probably the trickiest part as there was plenty of wet rock and interesting snow crossings. An hour of snow falling during this section made it even more exciting. Possible to to stay on dry rock from highest Seven Sisters lake up to the summit. Register is in great shape but could use some more paper. There was a clever cairned high traverse that contours above the highest Seven Sisters lake if your goal is to add on Whitney Pk. Be careful to stay on route/higher and not get lured too low too soon into some cliffs like my dumbass

Route: From Holy Cross Ridge

Info: A super cool peak and definitely worth making the out and back trip to. From Holy Cross Ridge drop down the usual granite talus/boulders to the saddle and then march on the ridge crest past impressive, steep, smooth slabs. There may be trail segments here and there. A lot of the ridge is flat, then it kicks back past a couple of teeth (all Class 2) to the summit, which is an absolutely incredible, nearly smooth block of granite on one side covered with talus on the other. Look in awe at the face and be glad there's an easy route to the top. It took me about 50 minutes one way to/from Holy Cross Ridge.
