Ascent Trip Report
Leatherman Peak, North Ridge via the 11,909 knob on the way, 7/10/1999. I did this with Dave Pengelly and John Kienberger. It seems as if this should have been done before as it is an obvious way up Leatherman if you are in the east fork valley. I'd wanted to get up Leatherman and we were down there to climb Corruption so we wandered up Leatherman via the north ridge as well. This was mostly a walk, with some minor scrambling and makes for a really nice, scenic ridge wander. Nice enough that we reversed the route to return to the car - an 8 hour round trip. The wildlife highlight of this one was jumping a lion on the way back through the woods.
