The north ridge approach on the Comanche Fin is a fun, not-too-exposed scramble directly up the ridge. This leads directly to the prominent splitter crack right on the prow.

Belay here and move right on airy but easy ledges, bulges, etc. rising to the summit block at 12,300'. Confident 5th class climbers solo this, but I'd rate most falls an "x".

Once on the summit block the challenging scrambling continues for a short while. Near the end of the ridge negotiate a descent to the west ledges and hence back to the cirque -or- often done, continue to the saddle between Fall Mountain and Comanche Peak and walk off via Mummy Pass Trail.
