A very steep off-trail ridgeline traverse that offers great views to the adventurous.

Description

From the end of the South Rock Creek Route, follow a game trail for 0.8 miles with an average grade over 25%. You'll definitely feel the burn as you travel up. Once on top, the ridgeline offers plenty of great views and options to explore to different vantage points. Once you've enjoyed the view and have caught your breath, head down a steep gully 0.7 miles with an average grade over 35% (over 40% in places, bring trekking poles!). The route levels out just before reaching North Rock Creek.
