After climbing the 800 ft...
After climbing the 800 ft slope from the Tempest/Granite saddle, you will arrive at the top of the north/south ridge at 12,300 ft. At the top, this is what you will see. Take time to consider the route up to to the notch. Note the "X" crack feature and climb the well-worn chute directly under it, then to the left and under it. Avoid the much harder chimney to the right of the "X" feature.  August 31, 2003. Photo and editing by Alan Ellis.

Camping at Pine Grove on Saturday and heading up FTD early Sunday. Expecting plenty of snow and willing to back off if things aren't right. I'll try the dirt bridge at the end of August if I don't make it this time.

Thanks for inspiring me with your excellent page and route description.
