Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge #644 Date Climbed: 08/25/01
Beautiful Day, no clouds, and the bugs were on vacation. Great hike up to metan lake, then the switchbacks up to Stujack Pass were great. Some overgrown shrubery up to the pass, and then some nice exposure along the ridge towards the summit. Left the trailhead at 815am, and made it to the summit at 12 noon. Hung out on top for about 1 hour and soaked in too many rays, and then descended down the long arduous trail. 5.3 miles one way, and 5000 vertical feet. It's a grind, but well worth it. Can't wait to hit this in the winter!
