Probably best as a spring climb, as the talus is nasty. Made it on the second attempt, after being driven off by brutal wind the day before. This was for the best, as it gave me a chance to explore the area around Twin Lakes, which is more scenic. Trip report.

My husband and I plan to climb the crazy peak in first week of Sep, I heard that there are snow/ ice above 10K feet. Do we need to bring snowshoes? How long does it take to hike to Crazy Peak from Granite Lake? Are there bears?

Beautiful day. Sat on the summit and watched a female bald eagle teach her son how to ride the currents. Awesome.

Our route up to the ridge crest was not as loose or nasty as some describe. The whole route was quite pleasant, if rigorous.

With Fred.

Woke up at Blue Lake to heavy forest fire smoke the next morning and bugged out.

Climbed this with Brian Baker, on a day of low clouds so we didn't know if we would be able to see much but the clouds parted and the view was fantastic. Traversing the west ridge is as usual, fantastic, and the final work over to the summit makes it more interesting. We were a bit late on the summit and a storm moved in, you could get the static electricity to arc to your hand when you touched the rock of the ridge, so we hightailed it down. Great day.

Ascended the north ridge (a few areas of class 3) to the false summit, then took the standard traverse to the true top. Was worried about snow but at least this year, the route over including the chute is bone dry; the gully and ensuing scramble were actually really fun! Descended the standard route, getting a bit off-route near the lakes till we found the trail. Interesting peak...

Climbed Crazy Peak in September of 2012 via the west ridge route. It was extremely windy the day we went up, and snow covered everything above 10,000 feet. Near the top there was a lot of ice and things got a little sketchy. All in all a great climb! Took us a good part of a day to do.

MTfred19West ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2012


Climbed alone (with my dogs) on a Wednesday and felt like I had the whole range to myself. Big Timber Creek is gorgeous and so are the upper lakes. I went a little further west than most, I think, and cut quite a few verts off of the climb up the steep loose stuff to gain the ridgeline. Wow! What an amazing view! Absolutely insane (crazy)!! Very cold and windy heading up the ridge to the false summit where I decided to leave the dogs with my pack and sticks. A very interesting route leads down the chute and over and up to the main summit. A great feeling of acomplishment! One of my favorite hikes - the only downfall being the amount of steep loose rock (very tedious and tough on dog feet). Can't wait to come back to the Crazys!

JLuthanenHelluva hike
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


Stayed overnight and camped at the TH. Early start in the AM, attained a saddle (the one closer to the highway I believe - had some difficulty triangulating). Buddy's dog was wimpering up high and his pads were cut up, and ridge to the top looked like a sufferfest. Definitely on the to-do list ...

Climbed via the west ridge. Camped out at Blue Lake the night before, started early. Attained the false summit quite easily, with a few class 3 moves on the way up. From the false summit we went down the infamous chute, and scrambled our way to the true summit. Great day on top, with blue skies all around.

Stellar views climbing the west ridge waaaay above the cloud cover. Fun glissading back down to Blue Lake.

My friend and I being the newbies that we were decided to head straight up a couloir on the NW face instead of the standard route. It being late in the season, that meant about two thousand vertical feet of shifting talus. Not fun. We stopped at the false summit and headed down the standard route.

An awesome day. Started from TH around 8. Had to tie my dog up when it started to get sketchy for him below the false summit. I accidently went down the wrong "chimney" which became treacherous class 4 with large rocks dislodging. I realized my mistake on the way back and was relieved to find the main chimney relatively free of loose rock. A memorable solo ascent.

Soloed the Crazy Couloir, the route described in Alpine ice & rock guide to Southwest & Central Montana. Great route! Had planned on doing it in two days but an evening of hail in a leaky bivy sack forced me to do it in one long day. Important lessons learned to say the least. Great mountain and amazing range!

Great solo trip. Camped at Blue Lake and then hiked straight to the mountain, gaining the west ridge. From there a simple ridge walk to the split summit, where a little scrambling is required down into the cleft and then back up to the actual summit. Beautiful weather, awesome place!

Made the "true" summit after about an hour and a half from the false summit. Gorgeous views and only about 5 other hikers during the whole trip considering it was Labor Day weekend. Tough hike, especially during the summer months.
