Description

The first pitch is interesting and a bit of an adventure (for a description of the first pitch, see comments below) The second pitch can be done without doing the first pitch. (See Beta Photo or read Location information below) The second pitch is excellent hand and finger jams and takes gear well with a couple of fixed pieces also. I know nothing about the 3rd pitch or beyond (there are comments regarding climbing beyond the second pitch in the comments below).

Location

This route (I am only referring to the pitch of North Country that starts at the ledge where Dragon Back and Absolutely Brilliant start - See Beta Photo) To get to this ledge you can go to the alcove that is the start of the second pitch of North Face, the start of a 5.9 unnamed OW (just right of North Face) and the start of Wallflower which is left of North Face. To get to this alcove you can go up Stem Mister then continue up on easier terrain or do the first pitch of North Face. This is a great place to spend the day climbing away from the public. You might even mow the lawn that is there. To access Absolutely Brilliant, North country and Dragon Back you will need to 3rd class down and right from the alcove (previously described) approx 40' and then up an easy section to a bushy ledge that you can traverse along. For information on accessing this climb see Beta Photo herein. To do the First Pitch and third Pitch (and beyond) of North Country refer to the comments section below.
