reboylesNorth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 1978


We did the North Ridge with the chimneys. I was surprised to not find a route page for this classic climb after all this time so I'm adding a few old photos from our climb of the original route. And I agree, this side of the Grand has some of the finest routes in the park.

Bill Krause and I climbed this wonderful route either in summer of 1989 or 1990 as part of our exploration of the North side of the Grand. I believe the North Ridge is a much better climb then the North Face. All the available variations, The Italian Cracks (awesome climbing) or this The North Ridge without the Chimneys provide a long (Grade IV), moderate (5.8 with a bit of 5.9) climbing in amazing alpine setting. IMO this North Ridge or the Black Ice Couloir to the West Face route (IV+, 5.8, mixed ice and rock) provide the two best moderate climbs on the North side of the Grand.
