I had a post asking about ascending Milwaukee from Cottonwood Creek side and the response was that there were cliffs near the summit so, you still had to go through the pass and cross the ledge. Do you know otherwise? Or are you suggesting ascending Pt 13020A from Cottonwood, then following the ridge to Pico Aislado and Milwaukee?
Sorry I wasn't more clear with my post. Yes, I meant ascending 13020 from Cottonwood Creek, then traversing to Pico
Asilado, and Milwaukee. You can descend off Milwaukee and traverse around Pico Asilado and then reclimb 13020
to get back down to Cottonwood Creek. Obviously this could be a very long day, and the weather would need to hold
because you would be up high for a long time. It may not be worth all this extra work to avoid the ledge on Milwaukee.
