BETA PHOTO: a diminutive looking Saber Ridge

Description 

After reading Brandon Thau's AAJ writeup on Saber Ridge, accompanied by a photo of a knife-edged ridge on pristine granite, I knew I had to make the trek. I wasn't sure what to expect but found surprisingly good rock for a rarely done backcountry route.

Thanks to Brandon for location beta.


Getting There 

Follow the approach instructions for the Tamarack Lake Area. As you enter the Tamarack Lake drainage you'll see the Prism with Saber Ridge behind it. Before reaching the bench with the lake cross-country uphill to the north to reach the base of the ridge. The ridge runs south to north and is immediately east of the Prism. Approach mileage: ~15.4

Being a ridge traverse there are many ways to go on some sections. Choose you own adventure. I found the most sustained part to be surmounting the first headwall.In relation to something like Matthes, it's longer, more sustained and more exposed....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
