Lichtenberg Mountain, Northeast Ridge. With mountain bikes offering quick access, Jens Kuljurgis and I made a one-day excursion of this climb. The route began on the west comer of the ridge, where we encountered an awkward (narrow) body jam in half a lead. From there a short scramble put us on the crest. Two more enjoyable leads cleared the difficulties, leaving only a scramble to the summit. The rock was surprisingly sound, encrusted with typical Northwest lichen in places. (II, 5.7.)
