The East Ridge of the North Peak of Ingalls is a nice climb with a few 5th class pitches, good quality rock, great vistas of massive neighbor Mt. Stuart, and an easy approach. The East Ridge is is rated 5.7, with a single crux move. Gear - medium to large stoppers, small cams, small tri cams. Use the nice creek at the trailhead to cool off your post climb beverages. While either of these routes may be done car to car in a day by fast teams, gorgeous backpack camps near Ingalls Lake are available and make for an relaxing weekend. There are three summits to Ingalls, North is the highest. For a more sporting day of climbing, tag the East peak of Ingalls (2-3 pitches of easy 5th class rock), rap to the notch between the east and north, climb the East ridge, and then rap the south face route. Combine one or more of these routes with a West Ridge of Stuart climb for a great Cascades granite 3 day weekend!
