But I'm not sure if CFI's new trail starts at the same place as the west slopes route listed on this site (link above).

Have you looked at google earth? You can see it as clear as day. You’re probably going to be fine.

The new trail segment starts above 11,700' when you get above tree line and into the gully. I just updated the route description with a new track file and new description text but NOT a new static topo map. It should be good for now and I'll get better photos when I get back there in a few weeks...

I'm very pleased to hear about the new route. It took me five attempts to summit. (The routes all involve lots of miles, being up high for a long time, and there were storms.) And we were hiking all over the mountain at times, which of course is bad for several reasons. Many thanks to CFI and all who contributed. =D>

Is a helmet really necessary on this route?
