I highly recommend the East Ridge over the standard route which ascends a loose gully (Class 2+) up from Blue Lake. Next time I might return via the East Ridge. The only thing you will miss (other than loose scree) is a gorgeous view of Blue Lake and some killer views of Mt. Toll. Register is a soggy mess - bring a replacement if you are so inclined. PM for a gpx of the full loop from Audubon if you are interested. Good Luck.

Never Paiute

I highly recommend never going to the summit of Paiute, because the East Ridge sucks for the most part, too.


Moose dont like Class 3

I liked the East Ridge and the views from Paiute were awesome.
