Great page, Alan....and Great work !!!! I am anxious to try this peak, because I've heard sooo much about it. Some of my friends have gotten their "butts-kicked" on it. There is really not much, here on the east coast, that I can practice on. Yes,I've been up Mt Washington, and a couple others in that range, but the altitude is just NOT the same. Guess that Granite Peak is just one that I've got to go and do!!!

You have done a great job, getting all of this information together and so organized and understandable !!! You surely must be a Special Person to help sooo many folks in this way !!! thank you sooo much. MG.

Mary,



Thanks for the vote and the comments. Granite is tough, but with a little planning and good weather, it's very possible. My recommendation is FTD plateau and to get as close to Tempest Mountain as possible on the approach. This will increase your chances of summiting. Good luck in your Granite climb.

Nice page... a 'must climb' for me as I love the wilderness of Montana and Wyoming.

Alan, an excellent page worthy of Granite Peak. I don't think you find will info like this, regarding Granite Peak, anywhere else. Truely excellent work and a benchmark for other page maintainers to follow.

Alan - I attempted Granite Peak Sept 12, 2003. We took the Huckleberry Creek/Avalanche Lake route. We made it to the Tempest/Granite saddle and turned around there due to the snow conditions. Fresh snow had fallen overnight and was knee-deep in some areas ascending to the saddle. I'm going back to Granite Peak this summer with the same group of friends to try it again. The Avalanche Lake basin is an incredibly beautiful place. It is too bad more people don't try that approach up Granite Peak

Take notes when you go back. I would be interested in including a detailed approach description from Avalanche Lake on the main page of Granite Peak. Thanks.

I have pictures and a topo with the route plotted out from our trip last year. I'll put together a trip report for the "Huckleberry Creek Approach" in the very near future.
