Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2015


Simple, trail the whole way. Windy and lots of flies but a pretty good view of these white tipped peaks. Lost my hat at the top...

An easy end to the day, as we did Blackmon after Patterson. The bushwhack down the ridge and through the area of the 2005 fire was fun as well.

this would be a great peak to bring along friends who aren't as serious about climbing- i believe it was less than 90 minutes to the top.

A great peak to bag on your way to lonesome. Good view of the surrounding mountains in the white clouds but not extremely demanding our technical.

Josh and I hiked from the parking lot up the SW ridge on the way to Lonesome Peak. There are some really good views from this easy to access peak.

Climbed Blackmon during our return leg out of Born Lakes with my son. The climber's trail is clear from the pass above Ants/Antz and we made the summit in quick order. We descended the ridge towards 4th of July creek and enjoyed a trail that ran parallel to the ridge through the forest. When the trail came to an abrupt end we cut south and came in at the site of the old mine. A nice end to a great White Clouds outing.

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2013


Fun climb which was done with my g-friend and our 2 dogs. Took a couple hours to reach the summit, then spent about 1/2 hour taking pics and soaking in the views. Was alot of fun, but was ready to come down (very hot this day at 93 degrees in Stanley). Would recommend!

Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2012


Hiked up from Born Lakes on our way back to 4th of July TH. Decent informal trail most of the way up. Took a cross-country route through the burn area on the way down. Saw a buck, doe and fawn family.

Went up the southwest ridge and then down the other ridge to Fourth of July Lake with a group of friends. Great views from the top and interesting old mines on the way up.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2009


No trails, just up from parking lot through burned woods to top. About 1,500 ft straight up. Very quick and easy with great views for a seemingly small mountain (although still higher than many Sawtooth summits visible across the valley).

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


made a loop of it by going up the south ridge after following the trail from 4th of July Lake up to the pass- this ridge is more scenic than the more direct ascent up the southwest ridge. Lots of burned forest in the area. My 5 year old almost made it to the top before he needed a lift

Amazing views for such an easy hike. Planned on following the ridge over to Patterson, but thunderstorms were rumbling.

Three of us made the trek from Fourth of July TH to Blackman Peak and then hiked the ridge up to Patterson. Good views. Easy route to summit both peaks. Reached the peak again in July of 2005 from the trail that heads to Born Lakes from Fourth of July.

Nice mountain to jog up in order to get a nice overview of the White Clouds. The view across the basin to D.O. Lee peak is fantastic. You can't help but look at it and drool over that mountain.

I planned on climbing Patterson Peak as well but bad weather threatened.

This is a great peak if you wan fast views of the entire range of the WCs, especially DO Lee, which is especially impressive from the summit.
