Matt LemkeEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2015

Matt Lemke

Day hiked the east ridge which was an awesome scramble from Easy Pass. We avoided as much of the side hilling as possible and stayed on the ridge only by passing below Kitling Peak and a small crag shortly above Easy Pass. After doing Katsuk, Kimtah and Cosho via the south side traverse from Easy Pass last year, I knew exactly what the side hilling was like on the Ragged Ridge! Upon reaching the base of the scramble, we entered a large gully, crossed over into a second gully and eventually reached the crest of the east ridge where we traversed the very exposed but mostly flat ridge to the summit. Nice "rest day" between our Chilliwack Trip and the Inspiration Traverse. We saw a crazy fire literally erupt behind Mount Goode which made for cool photos.

RomaKSouth Ridge scramble route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014


Just the 5th party to sign the summit log this year. Camped in the basin south of the peak. Traverse has tons of awful side-hilling and route finding. We didn't have the best beta and stuck around the 6800 ft contour, which seemed like a good option for the most part, though bypassing lower around the big waterfall gully on the west end of the traverse would be preferable.

Took the prominent ridge that goes just east of Katsuk's summit, being forced into gullies west of the ridge around 7800 ft elevation. Descended ridge east to Katsuk-Mesahchie col and climbed the summit pyramid via the prominent ledge system.

Beautiful area, some great scrambling, lots of loose rock.

Date is a guess. Solo'd up thru steep class 3, maybe 4, rock. Self-belayed couple of steep spots.
