North Guardian Angel-- Northeast Ridge

Visible in this picture are many of the Class 3 and 4 sections of the NE ridge route after gaining the ridge's lower crest. Also visible is the "5.6" (no way, in my opinion) 50-60' crack that is considered the crux and which can be bypassed on the right with exposed Class 3 and 4 scrambling. The tree above the crack has good-looking slings (or did in April 2012) and serves as a good rappel station. For an excellent diagram of the route, with notes, please see this picture.
