The Ridge Connecting Peaks 9 and 10

Route Description


This ridge run is a quick way from Peak 10 to Peak 9. It's not very difficult, but it requires a bit of elevation gain and loss. It's easier to go from 10 to 9, simply because 10 is higher.

The ridge is simple Class 2 the whole way, and is very obvious. A quick way to get down 10 would be to ski or glissade the NE Face(expert), and then climb the ridge to 9.
