Ken Minaret, Broken Rib

The northeast face of Ken Minaret features a sharp ridge that leads directly to the summit. In August 2008 Kevin Hartigan and I climbed nine pitches (Broken Rib, 5.9) along this prominent rib in a long day from Devil’s Postpile. We enjoyed great views and I was happy to tag my final Minaret summit. R.J. Secor lists 19 named Minarets in his guidebook, and though some folks have cruised most of them in a day, I am pleased to have spread it out over 37 years since my first attempt on Clyde in 1971.
