Broken Top Mountain - NW Ridge Route
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
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.
