Mt Stuart South Approach question

I've seen some folks approach Cascadian via Beverly TH and some via Esmeralda TH.

 

Can anyone give me a comparison in terms of distance, gain/loss, etc.?

 

I'd never turn down a route drawn on a topo, either, but I have the one from Beverly on Alpineslider.

 

Since nobody on here actually admits to climbing that route without skis, research has been tough!

Approach via Esmerelda is flat, but long. Like 12 miles long, if I remember correctly. You pretty much hang a right off the trail, go up a meadow (I'm sure there is a trail) and into the Cool-r.

 

Long's Pass is sucky, but it's much shorter than Esmerelda. I've heard of people making the long trip along Esmerelda easier with bikes, but I don't think that is legal.

 

I don't think the Asscadian Cool-r needs a topo. The picture in the Becky Guide will get you in the correct choss gulley, follow it to the shoulder, then take the easiest scramble to the top.
