Hike/Skin from the ski area, can bootpack but it would be rough.  Head east along main ridgeline over treasure mountain pass towards treasure mountain.  Head to the north through valley towards southern obvious knob.  Also one can hike from hwy up to treasure mountain pass and then work up to summit of knob.

Equipment Needs

Avy Gear


The Descent is the obvious funnel on the north side of the 11583 knob.  This line chokes down to about five feet wide and then opens up again for the exit of the avy path.  Be cautious!! If the bowl up top rips it will carry you over 50+ foot rocks.
