Northeast Ridge (Mount Triumph)

Leading the knife-edge ridge traverse section during our descent of Northeast Ridge of Triumph.

If it’s not here it might be in the Washington Pass pages or Alpine Lakes Wilderness pages or it’s simply impossible and hasn’t been done! The small selection of trip reports below is a mix of some easy rock climbs & snow slogs. Hoping to see it grow over the years.
