DescriptionAfter 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.
