Alternate North Ridge approach

It's conciderably easier to climb the North Ridge from the east by just following the Divide up from Lake Dorothy. Once you get to the ridge proper, it gets progressively harder culminating in a nifty 4th class, exposed scramble up a 30' wall. Not too hard, but definitely gets your attention.
