Ascent Trip ReportOld Hyndman Peak, North Ridge, II 5.7, 10/6/2001. Kevin Murray easily convinced me to climb the north ridge of Old Hyndman. We started at the campground in Wildhorse Creek, approached, and with some 3rd class and 6 or 7 pitches of broken rock, reached the summit via the north ridge. The last pitch, just below the summit, had a few 5.7 moves, the others were lower fifth class. In terms of line and directness, this was a high character route; it suffers from low quality, but tolerable/manageable, rock. We elected to descend the south ridge into the Hyndman basin north of Cobb, woke up a couple mountain goats, crossed the saddle between Old Hyndman and Hyndman, got back to the north ridge, and still ended up with two raps on that ridge. 12 hours round trip. This makes a good tour of the mountain.
