STEWAM (6_6 STEWART MT 12200 Class 2 from Ninie Lake Basin. From the north end of Lake 10440 climb a grassy gully to the slabs and ramps of the summit area. The high point of the peak is at the far western end of the high ridge atop the peak)

Cross Palisade Creek (The bridge over Palisade Creek is gone. Early in season, or after high snowpack winter, it may take scouting to find a safe place to wade or cross via log. After mid-August in a normal snowpack year, or as early as July after dry winter wading is no problem. If not possible to safely wade here, bushwack upstream to 0360955E 4101845N where the water is calmer and safe crossing may be possible.)
