[TR] Big Chiwaukum and Snowgrass Mountain - Standards 07/04/2020 in Alpine Lakes Posted Tuesday at 03:49 PM On 9/12/2020 at 11:17 PM, Kuato said: I was the climber that you meet on the summit of Snowgrass. We chit chatted about your climb up Monte Cristo with the river of water flowing up your sleeve. The NE Ridge route next to the steep ass snow on the NE Face route is pretty nice. Mostly class 3 with some 4 toward the top, some loose rock but overall very enjoyable. Leading up to that the ridge is easy traveling. The runout on that NE Face route would be bad news if one was to slip. Hey cool! It was nice to meet you. The photo you posted actually makes neither the snow nor the ridge look bad at all!
