Climbing the N. Ridge of Primus
The North Ridge, while not technically difficult, is fairly serious as it remote and involves a wide variety of skills including glacier travel and route finding.
On, what appears to have been the 2nd ascent, I climbed the ridge starting just left of the toe and simuled the route in 4-5 pitches. The rock is mostly solid and easy with a few short steep sections.
Gear to 2".
