Scrambling Routes
A moderate scramble via northeast slopes and ridge. Good routefinding required on more challenging southeast ridge. Mount Fullerton is one of the Front Range peaks that comes into condition comparatively early in the season, making it a good May starter. There is a choice of routes that can be combined into the traverse. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 120
