From the south side of Exit 28 on I-90, drive west then south on [signed] FSR-614 for 10.6 miles to an unsigned 3-way road junction. Go straight onto the middle road (FSR-439) and drive 1.1 miles to a sharp left/south turn in the road and an unsigned junction with an ATV road. Park here (3,920 feet; 47⁰33’17”N, 116⁰38’17”W).

North Ridge, Class 1

The Climb

From the road junction, hike south then east up the narrow ATV road to the open summit. The final section of the road bends sharply right/southwest to climb the northeast ridge to the top. There is no benchmark. There was no summit cairn so I built a modest one.
