Broken Top Mountain - NW Ridge Route
This is the view of the final section of the NW ridge of Broken Top from the route. The yellow is an easy class 2/3 hike up to the crux. The red is the approximate location of the route described by Hammer, and the blue is the rough location of the descent recommended by Brian Jenkins. On my ascent I first attempted the red route, but felt uncomfortable with no protection, so I followed the blue route both up and down (class 3/4) with no problems.

this photo is somewhat misleading for the blue route. I found the correct route to traverse under and around the obvious pinnacle to the final 4th class/easy 5th class 50 feet. going up between this pinnacle and summit block looked chossy and not the correct way to go. Great summit.
