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.


The rib is clearly seen in the pictures below. The descent is the same as the ascent.


The faint of heart may want a hip belay in sections, but this is clearly a 3rd class route.
