An easy diversion from the Tomies-Purple Mtn ridge...if proceeding south, the path contouring Purple's NE top is plainly visible in clear weather. From the gap it's a very easy stroll to the top: as previously noted, the summit provides a closer (and slightly better-balanced, IMHO) view of the lakes than Purple Mtn does.
