A scramble to a peak in the Teanaway area. Start about a mile in and follow the ridgeline, but be aware of loose rocks and talus at higher elevations. Traverse around the big rock blocks instead of climbing over them, because you would end up down climbing the other side and back to the ridge anyway.
Enjoy views of Little Annapurna and McClellan Peak upon summitting.
This hike can be class 2 or 3, climbing experience and equipment recommended.
