Description [Suggest Change]
This is a fun, easy snow route on the north face of Freedom Peak. Head up the snow slopes for several hundred feet to the obvious right-slanting couloir/gully. Follow this until it ends at the ridge and follow the ridge to the top of the peak. There are a couple 3rd class sections near the summit, but they are short and very easy.
Location [Suggest Change]
Leave the Dry Fork trail when you're right below the face. There will be a faint trail branching right off the main trail, right before the main trail takes a sharp turn to the left (north) and Lightning Pass. The route is obvious. See the beta photos.
Protection [Suggest Change]
An ice axe and crampons.
