A great alpine climb for a sunny spring day.

Description

From the Lake Fork Primitive Route, climb the 4th of July Couloir. Once at the top, head WSW along a Class 2+ ridge, navigating beneath, through, and around some technical rock features until the ridge mellows and leads to Lake Fork's summit.
