Ring Mountain - North Face
An extinct, horseshoe-shaped, volcanic crater located on the east side of the upper Squamish River. Three cairns separated by a few hundred meters are located on the flat summit plateau; the easternmost cairn marks the highest point on the mountain although the others cairns are only slightly lower. The summit is not technically difficult from most directions although a few steep rock bands exist along the crater rim. It's mostly scree up to 30 degrees. See also "Little Ring Peak".

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
