Sawtooth Peak Climbing Notes

Eric from UNITED STATES writes:

Well marked and relatively well traveled trail. The first mile is the toughest part of the trek to the Monarch Lakes and the pass/peak. It is stair stepped in parts using wooden (maybe) 12x12s. It’s a fairly steep trek. Come to a small hill side meadow and then the trail becomes a true wooded trail all the way up to the tree line. Once you get to lower Monarch if you are continuing to the pass, it’s a very tough decomposed granite screed slog for maybe 400 vertical feet possibly more. It is tough going, especially with a full pack! Well worth it as the view is beautiful and fishing in the lakes on the back side is pretty amazing!
