Park in a paved pullout on the right/east side of US-93 south of Challis at the north end of Grand View Canyon (5,755 feet).

North Ridge, Class 2-3

The Climb

From the parking pullout, head east across a cattle fence, a dry gully, and a 2-track road to reach the base of the north ridge. Scramble east up a steep, loose slope of scrub and scree/gravel to reach the crest of the north ridge. Climb south up the west edge of the ridge crest on scrub (initially) then ridge rock with a few minor ups and downs. Higher up, the ridge morphs into a face. Scramble southeast up steep-ish ledges and minor cliff bands to reach the small summit and the tall summit cairn. If you stay close to the ridge crest, this is a Class 3 endeavor. If you skirt the ridge crest on its left/east side, you can keep the climb at Class 2 difficulty.
