North Slope was a pain to get up, not because the length or incline, but because the route has such horribly loose rock. I have done several peaks with loose rock and this route tops it, especially since much of it half way up was soggy. I will never go on this route again unless it is completely covered in good snow. Also did the traverse when it started to rain and hail on us (nice). Several rock slides were heard from atop this wet traverse include on the ridge we were traversing. Care should be taken for rock fall in any of the gullies. Also, know how to get up and down the north buttress.
