Info: I reached the summit of Storm King Peak on Wednesday, before the steady rain hit the Weminuche area. The route is actually well cairned, especially after you gain the Peak 9/Storm King saddle. I added to those cairns to help bolster the route. The route follows the ridge crest, but it does not require to climb on it. It is loose but is mostly Class 2, with some minor Class 3 sections. The final push to the summit via the south gully is very loose, but there is good path you can follow. I would compare it to any gully on South Maroon. If you are headed into this area for SK, Silex or The Guardian, send me a PM and I can help with any specific beta you may want.
