“A great ridge run with great views of Eagle River and Ram Valley.”— Abe H
Once you gain the south ridge of the valley, it is a fairly pleasant uphill run with views of Rumble, Raina, and Eagle Peaks, Flute and Organ Glaciers, and Eagle River. I recall one section of minor scrambling, but it is very short and not exposed. There is also a very prominent false peak where we had to pull out a map to verify that it was not the actual peak. I have uploaded a picture of the actual peak from this false peak. From the false peak, we followed game trails along the scree until we reached the summit.
It is about 10 miles and 5200' of gain round trip. We are above average runners, in terms of speed, and it took us 8 hours. Again, there are multiple false peaks along the way, so keep going until you reach an apparent final peak on the ridge.
