Magnetic North Map

Magnetic North is a cool way to enter this area even if you don't want to hike all the way up to Sub-peak (you simply have to traverse around it). This is more of an alternate entrance into Magnetic Field but is a pretty cool run in and of itself. You can also take this lower entrance and still access the formidable Compass Chutes, the lower half of True North and even Latitude if you traverse properly.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
