The east ridge is as difficult as you want to make it. Staying on the ridge crest you get fun class 3 and maybe a move or two of lower 4th. However all difficulties can be bypassed.

Wild Basin TH
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2005
This mountain looks very impressive from Bluebird Lake but really it is a bump on the Continental Divide. I went up to Pipit Lake and then steeply to the saddle between Isolation Peak and Ouzel. After summiting I made my way to Ogalalla Peak.

Via North Slopes from Pipit Lake
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2008
Other than a slip on rocks right above Pipit due to my clumsiness, it was good to finally climb Ouzel. Ogalalla was next, followed by the long return to Wild Basin via Junco Lake drainage.

Route Climbed: E Ridge Date Climbed: November 8th, 2005
Summitted with Smudge in very high winds and snow sqalls on mixed rock/snow. Definitely was one of my favorite outings to date.

Route Climbed: NE Ridge Date Climbed: November 8, 2005
Very cold and very windy day with snowstorms. Considered turning around about a billion times. Exceptional route on solid rock and steep snow/ice. Maybe my most memorable climb to date.
