Description [Suggest Change]

The North Ridge follows trails leading south from Whatcom pass until the ridge narrows and steepens. Steep Eldorado-like snow fins with big exposure exist, as well as loose 3rd and possibly 4th class scrambling on generally poor rock in the vicinity of the summit.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Ice axe, crampons
