From the outlet of Ross Lake the intimidating Divide Mountain looms over us.The boardwalk at Ross Lake.The bushwhack is mercifully short and relatively easy despite appearances. Thankfully Mike agreed to eat the spider webs on ascent.There was a ton of flagging near the start of this streambed feature laying buried in the middle of the avalanche slope.The terrain opens up as we approach the NE shoulder (L) and north face of DivideEasy scrambling to the shoulderMike on the lower NE shoulder with Hector in the distant background and the avy slope at lower left.Looking up at the approach to the crux, which is still not obvious at this point.A view of the north face with our route still looking rather fierce.Liz on easy scrambling terrain up the shoulder.The route comes into view as we approach the north face - but it still doesn't look very inviting.We ascended the shallow, slabby feature just above Liz's head to the left.The shallow gully feature that leads up to the base of the crux chimney.Mike stands under the crux, ready to start up.Liz tried on climber's right, but there was an easier route on climber's left which is were I am and where she's coming over to.
