From Temperance River Gorge Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2013
An overcast day turned rainy when I reached the summit. The best hike option is to start from the Temperance River gorge on Rt 61. The gorge itself is spectacular, and starting there gives you a 3.5 mile hike with over 800 ft of gain. This mountain deserves it.
Beautiful views of the forest and lake from the summit. A lot of great climbing routes as well. I took my first trad fall on lead while climbing route 16. A good 15 foot drop, quite the well needed and crazy experience.
From Britton Peak Trailhead Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2012
Nice 1.5-mile hike along the SHT. Plenty of prior foot traffic through the minimal snow made the hike easy. Interesting rock along the trail, skirting the north, east, and south sides of the summit block. Views of the Sawtooth range, Lake Superior, taconite plants at Taconite Harbor and Silver Bay, and the distant Wisconsin shoreline.
