Description [Suggest Change]
This is a decent 3rd class route to the summit as an alternative to the class 2 Northwest Ridge. The Rib offers much scrambling and boulder hopping until you reach the airy ridge and follow it up to the summit. This mountain has a striking view all around and makes one feel as though they are in Giant country.
Location [Suggest Change]
The rib is clearly seen in the pictures below. The descent is the same as the ascent.
Protection [Suggest Change]
The faint of heart may want a hip belay in sections, but this is clearly a 3rd class route.
