North side from Little Sheep Creek Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2012
Stopped in for a climb to kick off a road trip down to California. Pretty easy for such a big mountain, but definitely worth the short amount of time because of the fun route and excellent views! Spooked some elk on the way up and met a very nice rancher -George- back down at the trailhead who shared some local info and stories with me. He told me he climbed Garfield once- way back in August of 1953! Also, there is a rocky area where you first gain the ridge that is chock full of fossilized shells!
