United States, Washington—Cascade Mountains, Chimney Rock, North Peak, North Ridge

Chimney Rock, North Peak, North Ridge. From an approach on the Overcoat Glacier, Donna McBain and I did this route on August 14. The first four pitches follow steep, lichen-covered rock, just east of the ridge crest, to the base of a large tower blocking the ridge. This is bypassed by easy fifth-class climbing to the west. From there, about 400 feet of fourth-class climbing reach the summit. (III, 5.7.)
