Whitehorse, East Ridge. This ascent was made on June 2 by Ben Guydelkon and me. Take an old logging road that starts on the west side of Squire Creek until it can no longer be travelled by car (c. 4 miles). Continue up the road to the logged-off area. This road is sometimes hard to follow because of a large stream running down it. Climb up the logged-off area to a wooded ridge. Continue up this ridge to get into the brushy basin on the left (east). From the basin ascend the gully to the start of the east ridge. Follow the ridge up brush and snow slopes to the base of the long rock ridge. Class three and four to the top of the ridge. Drop to the summit snowfield and continue south to the summit. Time: 11 hours. NCCS II, F3.
