Variation NW Ridge

If you like ridges and traverses, the Northwest Rib is a longer more sustained Class 3 climb. Start at the Northwest rib, and ascend to the ridge where it is at a 45 degree angle, then climb the talus pile behind it until the Ridge drops off, and then climb along the East side of the Ridge to the Summit Plateau. Much more time up high on the ridge, and easy slab walk up. The ridge itself is vertical slab, and the higher you are on it, the more vertical it is. There is great footing up there, so no problem. See pictures.
