Shelf System Scramble
Continue to work your way higher until you reach the cliff and shelf system on the South side of the hillside. From here look for the ridge heading higher off to your left, this is the direction of travel. I looked for cairns and any other trail markers but did not find one until reaching the top. There is a lot of animal activity in the area from the amount of droppings and tracks which made trail identification more difficult.
I would rank this portion of the hike class 3 scramble with one particular chute climb class 4 only because all the sand and rock has been stripped away down to the bare rock. There are good hand holds with a nice belay station above to help weaker climbers. Fifty (50) feet of rope or webbing should be enough. The climb is accented with prominent large rocks that project out every 20 feet or so and would make for nice belay points.
The scramble ends by topping out into a high tree filled meadow, punctuated with a golden wall at the rear, the wash to your left and the most interesting Hoodoo I've seen on your right. A cairn greets you at the top of one of the cliffs and lets you know your on the right track. Continue left through the wash until you reach the large (very large) sandstone bowl.
