Patrick set out to climb the North Ridge of Lone Pine Peak. We bivied in the trees near Meysan Creek below the standard approach to the ridge and started out at sunrise. We soled the 'standard' route past the first three towers and then roped up for 4 pitches up the headwall, all of which Kedron led, before scrambling the last section to the summit!
