East Thorne, East Ridge (5.7)

Jonathan Kriegel and I did the complete East Ridge from Salmon Lake. Hardest was a 5.7 pitch to gain the ridge from the lake. 12 hours total. The photo below, from Rain Peak, shows the entire ridge. We started it near the boulder-like feature in the center of the last spire at the far left end of the ridge. Web reports show that others have done this, but likely avoiding the hard rock climb approach in favor of a nearby gully.
