North-Northeast Ridge, Class 2+

Access this ridge from the Summit Creek Trail. Follow the trail to the broad saddle above the Right Fork Kane Creek. From the saddle, the north-northeast ridge climbs directly to the summit. The ridge begins climbing through widely-dispersed trees and then becomes steep, grassy slopes traversed in places by a game trail. The last several hundred feet of elevation gain crosses ragged rock. The route finishes by passing a vertical wall on the left side of the ridge.
