Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge. Date Climbed: May 27, 1987
We started this climb from the short road intersection at 10,780' along the Stevens Gulch Road north of the peak. Hiking this road west for a few hundred yards we reached the lower avalanche slopes of the central couloir on the north face. From here we worked our way south along the rounded northeastern ridge, which forms the left hand side of the couloir. This ridge of mainly talus was followed to the summit. The descent was by a two thousand foot glissade down the central couloir....too much fun!!!
