The long ridge dividing Wasootch Creek and the south fork of Porcupine Creek is, in terms of difficulty, more difficult than the Centennial Trail, but easier than Northover Ridge; that is, if you follow the ridge in its entirety. Most people don't, being content to make their objective either the big cairn or the first grassy summit before the scrambling begins. If going for the high point at GR376436, check the ridge from the highway and wait until the snow is off the northeast face.
