Thanks to Sean Duffy for adding this peak.

Best approach is from Redfish Lake. Follow trail past Alpine Lake and leave trail to scramble up and over small pass on north side of Pt 9701. Drop down past Warbonnet Lakes and Feather Lakes; best camp spot is Bead Lakes. (Approach to Bead Lakes is approx 8 miles). From Bead Lakes, scramble about 1000 feet to the saddle on the SE side of Warbonnet. The climb starts here. Climb the SE face (Regular Route) 5.7 / 7 short pitches. It joins the SW rib route on pitch 6. The summit pitch is easy and spectacular- lots of exposure and solid positive rock. The true summit is a breathtaking overhang that you stand on top of. Enjoy the views: Tohobit Peak to the west, the Mayan Temple to the SE, Baron Peak to the NW and the Monte Verita Ridge to the east.
