North Ridge, Class 2

The route is shown on the map below. This route climbs up steeply to the top of the ridge and then follows the undulating ridge to the summit in 0.5 miles with just under 400 feet of elevation gain.

The 3-peak route that I followed. This route covers 5.54 miles with roughly 1,600 feet of elevation gain. It’s Peak 8083 not Peak 8063 (my mistake).

The Descent

From the summit, descend northwest back over the false summit to the 7,980-foot saddle. From there, bushwhack west directly at the sharp turn in Indian Creek Road, which is quite visible below you. The terrain on the west face is thick sagebrush with a very loose scree/gravel base. Once on the road, return to your parked vehicle.
