Hall Peak, Skubi Ridge. The interesting north ridge of this relatively minor 5452-foot peak was first climbed July 4 by Jim Carlson, Bob Marcy, George Mattson, and me. The route begins from the low 4271-foot notch, easily reached from Silver Gulch, where a cairn is erected commemorating the ridge to young Steve Skubi killed in 1962 while making the first attempt. The climbing is class 3 and 4 over the 5200-foot spire and into the high notch, from where a vertical 20-foot lead and 300 feet of class 5 rotten rock lead directly to the summit.
