wyomtmanCrazy Coulior  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2006


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


Two for two...started at Granite Lake and headed up the west ridge - standard route. Forest fire smoke obscured the distant views, but the short range views were superb. My buddies dog almost made it! Wonder if there's ever been a pup up there before?

Ascended one of the gullies west of the summit to the west ridge, climbed that ridge to the summit. Descended the north ridge, following others who had climbed that route. We lost track of the folks leading the way down, so improvised a way down off the cliffs on the west side of the north ridge. It was getting rather late by then, so we were very glad to find a good way down while it was still daylight. Nice peak, beautiful area, and fun summit scramble.

CBakwinSmokey Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2006


I did this on a smokey day due to forest fires South of Big Timber. The morning was pretty clear but the winds brought smoke in the afternoon. Left the TH at 9:18, later than planned. granite Lake at 12:18, about 3 mi, 2000'vert. The next two mi is about 3000'vert, up the stream from Blue Lake, turn left (eastish). In the bowl I climbed a nasty loose rock gully to the ridge, and followed it to the summit. Right before the summit you have to decend about 50' vert and then climb steep, nasty loose rock to the true summit, I didn't do this as my friend was waiting for me at Granite Lake and had to leave by 6pm, so I didn't actually summit. I was up at 2:45, back to Granite at 4:30, out at 6:18. Trip is 5mi one way, 5000' vertical. Probably 10 hrs RT.

First tried climbing Crazy Peak in June 2003 - turned away by zero visibility conditions. Successfully reached the top in July 2006. Great hike, no one around except down by the lakes.
