Climbed this as a day hike with my (now) wife (it was one of her first hikes ever!, sorry hon!) when we were working in YNP for the summer of 2001.

This was wild....so since I run the kitchen @ Canyon I was able to get some burgers and stuff, and we were going to have ourselves a barbeque over a makeshift fire pit in our self proclaimed camp site and use this makeshift grill that my partner brought that u threw over the fire....well all the ice melted in the bag with the meat and it was leaking so the buns got ruined, but we kinda ate this stuff w/o bread....This guy had this shitty tent that was probably 2 feet high and 4 feet wide and 6 feet in lenght and probably cost like 10 bucks. It was supported by some cheapo poles that pretty much bent as you tried to stick them in the ground....and supposedly there was a pole in the tent that supported the middle, but trying to squeeze the two of us into that one person tent with the pole and all didnt work so we passed on that....Anyway the next day we couldnt wait to get the hell out of there so we killed the summit, snapped some shots and run back home to the Canyon....beautiful summit conditions, mosquitoes down there are merciless...

One of my best memories from my first summer working in Yellowstone. Route was long but the scrambling at the end was fun. Fantastic views and a great looking peak.

What is really impressive about this mountain is when, on a clear day, you drive south from Mammoth Hot Springs towards Norris junction. You drive a few miles with rock walls to your right and a big drop-off with Africa lake to you left. As soon as you pass the water fall, this beautiful valley, Swan Lake Flats, opens up before you. Look to your right to see the sheer beauty of Electric Peak. Electric was not the first mountain I climbed, but it was the first mountain that I wanted to climb.

Climbed this with a fast hiker from South Carolina, Up in 4 hours, down in 3 1/4. 3,500' vertical, 20 mile RT. Last part is fun, loose rock, scramble up to the top, if it seems to hard, try another way, it's better than it looks.

WY in ORRoute Climbed: Usual route Date Climbed: June 21, 2003  Sucess!
Second attempt at climbing this behemoth. The way it dominates the skyline around Mammoth makes it a must climb. Solo day hiked it both times. The first time was a year earlier, and turned back 200' from the summit due to weather, and poor route finding. I did see a grizzly on the hike out. He struck a few good poses for me, and I snapped a couple pics. That redeemed the trip for me. Second time I went up I paid attention to where I was going and made the summit early afternoon. Good scramble up, but lots of steep scree. Not for the average Joe.

There is know doudt how this peak gets its name. My hair buzzes just thinking about it. Definite strike dangers and wildlife dangers as through most Greater Yellowstone backountry. You have to check out the disc golf course at Mammoth Hot Springs and the hot water soaking at the Boiling River swimming hole. I worked for Yellowtone for 5 years and often made my way through the Mammoth area.

From Gardiner, Montana, this peak is the most impressive thing in sight. I lived in that area for a year, and it took me 5 months to get there. This started a spree of climbs throughout Yellowstone during September. I went back a couple of years later with my wife (whom I met in Mammoth in '95), and still missed the easy trail up the last 50 feet of this peak. Great exposure, fantastic view.
