Stream crossings on the approach are of no concern. Take the standard route up Challenger just past a section of willows after you cross Willow Creek above the falls, then hang a left and you can avoid bushwhacking through willows to the base of Outward Bound Couloir and not have to deal with any major stream crossings. There is a little section of snow at the base of OB Couloir to gain access to the North Ridge, but it is easily avoidable. Great climb.
