DescriptionHike up the canyon from Finger Lake towards Norman Clyde Peak. Then, before the glacier, slabs to the right to gain the crest of the long NNE ridge running down from the peak.
The route does not follow the ridge directly - this is Firebird Ridge (IV 5.9) a different proposition.
Cross onto the north face where the ridge begins to steepen and take the path of least resistance up this face about 50/200 feet to the right of the main ridge until the crest of the summit ridge is reached. Scramble to the summit.
Descend the route.
