The North Ridge of Hermit Spire is a quick way up to the summit. Expect a minimum of technical climbing with great exposure.

Start about 10-20' left (east) of the crest of the ridge and follow a system of easy ramps until an obvious and easy break right (west) to the shoulder. Work around right and up blocks past the bolted belay of Pyramid Scheme and on to the summit.


A very light rack of long slings and cams to 2". You can clip the bolted anchor on Pyramid Scheme, one good and one very poor bolt. To descend, reverse the route.
