Mount Tatum, Northeast Ridge. On July 7 to 10, my brother Steve Hackett and I climbed Mount Tatum (11,140 feet). We left Wonder Lake early on the 7th and spent the whole day walking to McGonagall Pass. The next day, after a late start, we ascended the northeast ridge of Tatum, reaching the summit late in the evening. The ridge was a long, 3½-mile snow trudge with some fairly exposed cornices in its upper reaches.
