Mount Stuart – West Ridge 6-27-15

Mount Stuart, via The West Ridge route….Classic! Beautiful chunk of granite. The West Ridge route is a technical scramble with a few pitches of mid 5th class climbing. It’s a long route, especially from Ingalls Lake, although Ingalls Lake is a beautiful camp…with a refreshing swim. We surely didn’t break any speed records, 18-hours camp to camp, but we did complete the route successfully. The team was myself, Chris, Marty, Mark, and Natasha.
