Description 

This makes a fun traverse from the summit of Trapezoid Peak. Exposed and fun low 5th class ridge climbing. Some loose rock but mostly quality traversing. Several towers are encountered. Some can be climbed, others are more easily bypassed on the climbers right side of the ridge. The last tower requires a 50 foot rappel (or what looked to be at least 5.8 downclimbing).

To make this a longer day, start at the North side of Hurd Peak, down the South ridge of Hurd, up class 3 to an unnamed summit, then over to Trapezoid. Great traverse with minimal approach.


Location 

From the summit of Trapezoid peak (aka peak 12,960), head down and east toward Mt Goode for approx. 1/2 mile of ridge traversing. Standard class 2 descent from Mt Goode takes you to Bishop Pass trail at Saddlerock Lake.


Protection 

Suggest light alpine rack and 30m rope.
