Mostly 4th class, some easy 5th class moves. Scramble on occasionally loose rock up the North/ NE Ridge, following the easiest line and best rock. Staying to climber's right will yield a much more direct line. Obligatory now patches may be encountered near the summit, bring snow gear in early season.
From the Boulder Lake/ Creek drainage, hike west up loose scree to the leftmost (furthest south) prominent saddle. From there, traverse south/ left onto the north ridge and begin climbing.
Light alpine rack, or solo
