|Don't follow the trail, but stay on the north ridge to avoid the downed trees from the fire. The trail only exsists for 1/4 mile, so you don't gain much. It maybe a bit longer of a hike, but worth looking into Sweathouse canyon once you are on the ridge. Gorgeous hike and great views. Remember the actual summit is about 1/4 mile north, once you hit the saddle. Follow the creek back down to enjoy the ponds. Still plenty of snow patches and water in 2012 July.|

|Can't recall the exact date. November '09? Low clouds blocked the view of Sky Pilot and only allowed a fleeting glimpse of Bear Lake. Slipped a ways down some very slick windblown slopes on the way down.|

|Probably not a spectacular hike in summer, but this is a great backcountry ski area in winter.|

|There was 40 inches of fresh snow. It was the most amazing day of skiing I have ever had. Gash point will live in infamy.|

|16may10 - I decided to hit the mountains a bit earlier this year. Gash Point was the first of the year. The snow was a bit on the crappy side - not very consolidated very well yet. Had to use snowshoes even early in the morning while climbing. Yuck!|
10jun09 - Used this summit as an early-season get-in-shape climb. Good weather and great views always make this summit a nice place to visit.
3jun08 - Decided to see just how much snow there was up high after our very snowy Bitterroot Winter. There was still a lot. Close to the summit there were drifts over 20' deep. Saw several elk cows, prints from mule deer, and a squirrel above snow line.
October 2006 - Climbed just to see what damage had been caused by the summer's Gash Creek Fire. Not too bad.
July 2006 - As it had rained fairly heavily the night before, bushwhacking up this route provided us with very wet legs and feet. The humidity kept the rest of our bodies wet with sweat!
