    I’ve been up twice. Do not try and go left of the red banks. It looks ok but it’s not. You should be going right of the banks but left of the thumb then you can walk left across the ridge above the the banks and up misery hill

    I agree with Michael When hiking up the gulch going left at or above Redbanks will take you to misery hill. going right will take you to Thumb Rock.

    Well, you must mean going "right" of the red banks. I was just up there yesterday and Misery hill is to the right side of red banks. I went left and I would not recommend it.

    Going left of the heart and red banks via Avalanche Gulch is a more direct route and puts you at the base of Misery Hill. It is steeper but my 22yr old daughter with no previous climbing experience did it with no problem.
