The CFI has now built a very nice trail up from Missouri Gulch to the North/Northwest ridge. On the ridge there is a trail the entire way, though it breaks down into several very short sections of class 2, otherwise a very nice runnable trail. Just wanted to update the page with this info, as seen on climb/descent of the South ridge/N-NW ridge in Aug 2007.
Thanks I included your update in the route info. BJ
