Waypoint 1
Jacobs Ladder
 Elevation: 6890  Feature: Ridge
Notes: It is the incline you follow for most of the hike, until you are very close to Lone Rock. From there you can climb 2000 ft straight up (it seems) to Enniss Peak at the top of Draper Ridge.

Lone Rock
 Elevation: 7630  Feature: Rock Outcrop
Notes: The maps show Lone Rock about a quarter mile from where it really is, this is a little pet peeve of mine. If you look toward Jacobs Ladder from Alpine, its obvious where Lone Rock is. The maps show its located at the end of the rock incline.
