Route Climbed: NE Ridge Date Climbed: July 21, 2002
Relentlessly steep! That is the thing I'll remember most about this climb! The last 1000' are worth all of the grunt work to get there though. Fun route finding, and great summit. Fun ledges and gullies, some loose rock, but mostly solid climbing. Most challenging mountain so far!

Awesome Climb! very steep though, and the "kneebanging" descent was not fun :( I dont know which way Gerry Roach climbed this mountain, but the last thousand feet is not all fatal drops as he exclaims in his guidebook. I think he just gets a little over dramatic in most of his "descriptions".
