BETA PHOTO: Deltaform from summit of Neptuak

Description 

Peak numero eight. The tallest of the ten, offering reputed 'rank' Rockies rock. Most ascents are via the Northwest Ridge which summits Neptuak (nine) along the way. The infamous Super Couloir authored by George Lowe and Chris Jones ('73) is the real line, but if you're looking here for beta on such a route, you're a dummy. The NW ridge offers a great day or two out climbing through a geological time warp; so many kinds of rock up there, all offering their pros and cons. The shale isn't the worst up there surprisingly...

Getting There 

Moraine Lake to Wenkchemna Pass. The Northwest ridge of Neptuak drops right to the pass, quite obvious.

I saw this route from the top of Temple and it screamed 'climb me!' That and the reputation for some crap rock caught my attention, gotta see what purported choss is really like...famous last words.This is a great mountain route, not overly-intricate route finding (just stay on the ridge!) lots of technical downclimbing and some heart swallowing exposure from time to time.
