Near Sunshine Village.
Hike/Scramble: After reaching Citadel Pass on a leisurely trip with some friends (pictures shown), I knew I would come back and scramble both Citadel and Fatigue. Fab was working up at Sunshine Village, building the existing Divide chair. I took a ride up to the village along with him for one of his shifts. The walk to the pass was very pleasant. From the pass, I hiked up the broad north-east ridge to the rockband.  I traversed climber's left on the east side to several convenient weaknesses. The summit is minutes away! This is a very short scramble from the pass; it is well worth combining with Fatigue Mountain.
