Annotated map of Vogelsang Peak's Northeast Buttress route. From the outlet stream of Vogelsang Lake, head directly uphill to the base of the striking northeast buttress. Climb the buttress directly over sustained class 3 terrain, with a few unavoidable and short sections of class 4. Near the top of the buttress, you can a) climb fifth class rock directly or b) edge out onto the west face for a few highly exposed class 3 moves. Once onto the North Ridge, the climbing is initially exposed class 3 bouldering with exposure, but quickly lessens to a walk-up all the way to the summit.
