The Jaw, North Ridge. Loring Woodman and Duncan Cameron made the first ascent of this route on August 21 from the saddle between the Jaw and the Outlier (Peak 10,628). After the first vertical step, 90 feet of scrambling brought them to a slight overhang leading to a prominent pinnacle which was passed on the right. The last pitch, a jam crack followed by a hand traverse, proved to be the most difficult of the climb.
