Brad Grohusky breaking trail on the NW Ledge.
Northwest Face - ledges. Mountaineer's Route.
Beware of avalanche danger!
Approach exactly like you're headed for the NW Face.
When you are spitting distance to the base of Birds of Fire, hang a hard right. Follow the right-rising ledge to the west shoulder of the peak.
2 pickets maybe & 1/3 rock rack.
NW Face is behind Brad.
Deep, unconsolidated snow, thwarted us.
5/3/08 - descent toward Frozen Lake.
He's 6'5" - let HIM lead the posthole part!
