North Ridge Update by Livingston Douglas

Date of Climb:  September 20, 2018

Snow Peak is a gentle giant that lies between Bonneville Peak to the north and Haystack Mountain to the south. The North Ridge Route is not described in the book.

North Ridge, Class 2

Access

Same as for the South Ridge of Bonneville Peak. This route is part of a ridge traverse from Bonneville Peak to Snow Peak.

Route

From the 8,660-foot saddle at the base of the North Ridge, follow the easy ridge southward on broken scree and short scrub/tundra to the gentle summit. The summit of Snow Peak has a nice cairn with a triangulation post in it. The East Side of the mountain is a series of gentle, open scrub slopes. While there is no trail to the top, there is no need for one.
