Route Climbed: West Ridge from Cloyses Lake Date Climbed: September 5, 1997
My son, Patrick, and I camped near the cabin above Cloyses Lake and started our climb at daybreak. I had tried the week before but I went to far up the upper valley before I tried to reach the ridge and it got too late so I aborted. We went directly to the ridge when we reached the upper valley. This is a really neat place. We followed the ridge with little or no difficulty except I lost one of my brand new gloves. We joined the Northwest Ridge Route and completed the climb.
Route Climbed: from the west Date Climbed: august 17 th and 18th
summated huron around 9:00 at nightfall and descended from their to clousey lake just below treeline on missouri's western slopes, from there climbed up and unto missouri's eastern summit ridge. my flashlight went out but it was a clear night, no moon, but enough light to make out the trail along the summit ridge.
about 100 yards or so from the summit I came to a place where it was to steep to negotiate on either side without a light as I couldn't make out the route in the darkness.
curled up and attempted to sleep for an hour or so but it was very cold and windy, when it began to get light and there was enough light to continue on I went on and summated. Descended to the east towards belford from there.
