Climb starts at Urad Mine. Hike up the Ruby Gulch trail to it's terminus and go cross country to the NE face of Parnasus.  We will then determine a way to  gain access to the NE Ridge.  I have visually looked at it several times but have not tried climbing it.  It will definitely be a scramble and the intent is to see if the route goes as a class 3 or 4 scramble.   For this trip a ​Helmut is mandatory!  If you are not comfortable both up and down climbing class 4 with exposure...this trip is not for you! This is a fast paced trip and expectation is that the climbing pace will be 1500' / hr.   The route is now dry and snow fields are avoidable.  Descent will be to the Woods / Parnasus saddle up Woods and  then back into Ruby Gulch.   Please call or email me for the password with a verification that you have done class 4 scrambling with exposure.   I can email you a photo of the route if you are unsure. 







Only two of us did the trip.  It turned out to be a class 3 scramble.  Most if not all of the class 3 moves could be avoided by hiking up steep scree adjacent to the ridgeline.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
