Condition photo 30 December 2017. The river is not frozen, so the approach involves a water crossing.  Thatchtop NE Gully, 17 Dec 2017. 30 meters WI3. At the top of this pitch was a rat’s nest of tat with two oval biners to rap off. Didn’t climb higher due to high winds. There might have been more ice higher, but didn’t see it.  The north ridge approach on the Comanche Fin is a fun, not-too-exposed scramble directly up the ridge. This leads directly to the prominent splitter crack right on the prow. 
 <br />
 <br />Belay here and move right on airy but easy ledges, bulges, etc. rising to the summit block at 12,300'. Confident 5th Class climbers solo this, but I'd rate most falls an "x". 
 <br />
 <br />Once on the summit block, the challenging scrambling continues for a short while. Near the end of the ridge, negotiate a descent to the west le  First pitch of the belayed pitches on the west side of Comanche Fin. A few moves of 5.5+, but mostly easier.  North ridge of Commanche Fin-Emmaline Lake-Poudre Canyon-Fort Collins. The red-line is the 4th Class scramble, the yellow line the low 5th Class route to the summit block.
