ApproachFrom the Fourth of July trailhead, follow Arapahoe Pass trail and the same approach as to Jasper's Northeast Slopes to the unamed lake at 11500'.
Route DescriptionFrom the unamed lake at 11500', angle west up the talus to the saddle in the Northeast Ridge. Follow the ridge 0.5 miles to the summit.
This can be class 3 if you go around the three humpbacks on the ridge, or 5.0 if you go straight up and over them. This is handy, I went the hard way going up and the easy way on the descent. The middle humback has the coolest moves- four body lengths of big jugs on solid rock.
This took three hours from the trailhead to the summit. Bring a headlamp and do it after work!
