Climbed with Hoyt. Met some Canadians on top who, once again, proved that Canadians are the nicest people ever.

Hiked to the summit behind my twin daughters (age 11). A great hike and a great day. Memorable experience for all.

Nice climb despite the wildfire haze from the summit. Very steep and direct.

The route description makes it sound steep and heinous but it turned out to be a pleasant hike. Some recent storms had put out all the wildfires so we had superb views.

TonkaShort but fun hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2012


I was up in an 1 1/2 hours on what I would call just a good steady pace and the whole route was done in 2:20 with a little light jog on the way down. All the fires made the view foggy but still beautiful. The description I had said to be careful on the "ridge" up to the summit. This was funny because that ridge is like 20 feet across and than sloping at that on the edges. There were only 4 or 5 people on the hill when I was there.

nice routefinding fun in a little fresh snow. Dust on crust in the morning ascent, which unfortunately turned to glop on top by descent time.

SummitWolvesYNP5 times... still going strong  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2012


We've done avalanche multiple times, at all different times in the season, and in both the light and dark. Its one of the easiest big summits to reach inside of the park. A lot of great views, and a lot of great practice for the mountains across the street.

chicagoskyMy first summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2011


My first summit - truly memorable given that a significant portion of the trail was lost in the snow and I had to scramble up a steep scree.

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2010


Climbed with my wife on our way out of Yellowstone. Incredible 360 degree views were some of the best I have had on any summit. We could see all the way to the Tetons and beyond on a really clear day.

CedarWindy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2010


Climbed it in the late afternoon on a day with a chance of thunderstorms. Luckily, no thunderstorms rolled in. Just some tiny wildfire on the east side of Hoyt Peak. And massive winds near the top. I estimate the winds to be between 70 and 80 mph on the ridge between the false summit and the real summit. Tons of shaking wildflowers (from the wind) too.

I didn't really find the views that "inspirational" though that could be that the sun had made Yellowstone Lake glaringly bright and difficult to look at.

This is also my most northern 10k peak.

My first 10K peak. For a Southern fellow this was a real experience for me. Didn't hit Hoyt Peak due to thunder rolling in. But Avalanche was gorgeous!

I did this after Hoyt and found it to be a nice walk up with some people to talk to on top. I was glad I wasn't the only one that was disappointed that the weather was lousy in mid-August.

wyopeakMikebest easy Yellowstone peak  Sucess!


I hiked up to this summit a couple of times in the nineties. I need to return because it really is an unbelievable view. For a peak with a trail and a very close highway, it is hard to beat. Mt Washburn gets way more hiker traffic and the view from Avalanche is inspirational.

This trail was steep and direct. I really enjoyed the hike. Great views from the summit. We stayed there for quite a while but had to leave since a storm was moving in. It rained during the entire drive home.
