Planned on doing this via the north face couloirs, but hiking partner was not feeling it and had to turn back. Ended up doing the normal route solo. Planned on hitting Iowa too, but the clouds were building fast so had to settle for just 1 on this day.

Double-header with Huron, though both by standard routes. Still too much posthole-inducing slush on the trail, so I took the fat rib to its left. Maybe class 3 w/ some steep-ish snow. Trip report

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2004


8/15/04 - Standard route up from Missouri Gulch in my cottoneering days.

1/30/10 - Winter ascent via the West Ridge. Road closure was 3 miles from Vicksburg making it an 8.5 mile approach to base camp below Clohesy Lake. The 3 miles from Rockdale to camp were untracked and required very difficult trailbreaking... all done by me in the span of 5-6 hours! Summit day was long and tiring, the west ridge seems endless. The final bit of ridge to the summit was very exciting (stayed on ridge crest)! Continued on to Iowa and Emerald before making an epic return to camp, again breaking through deep powder.

shknbkeWest ridge winter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 30, 2010


Missouri in winter was a whole lot tougher than I anticipated. We climbed the west ridge from our camp below the summer Cloyses Lake trailhead. The west ridge is LONG and we had to stay above the summer crux on the n.w. ridge along the exposed ridge crest. It's a whole different ballgame up there in winter, but the weather was awesome! Continued over to Iowa and Emerald, then suffered through some epic postholing back to camp. Thank God for strong partners!

Date Climbed: May 9, 2009


May 9, 2009- climbed missouri's north face with mike. the snow behaved nicely for us, making kicksteps somewhat painless, before topping out just feet from the summit. a fantastic, early couloir season line!

Jan 29-31, 2010- spent three days(21.5 miles/5,270') plugging through an unforgettable adventure on missouri, #33/100 winter. friday's 8.5 mile slog to camp was nightmarish and my body was shot for summit day saturday. that effort cost me a shot at emerald. sunday's hike out wasn't bad and overall it was a productive trip.

June 18, 2016- a return trip up missouri's north face, this time with michelle and steve. really enjoyed being back out there and kicked the way up the couloir!

ScottMissouri in December  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 6, 2008


After I slept at the trailhead, Jeff Goodwin and I met at the Rockdale Trailhead at 5:15 AM for our attempt on Missouri Mountain. We waited around until 5:30 just in case anyone else showed up since there were some more people interested in climbing it. At 5:30 we drove through the treacherous stream crossing and drove part way up the road and we found that with very careful 4wd driving we could make it to the first parking area along the road.

We broke then broke trail to Clohesy Lake (part way on snowshoes), but found it to be much easier than expected so the going was faster than we thought it would be. After taking a break at the frozen lake we headed for the mountain. The weather was on and off with brief bouts of snow and some occasional views of the snowy peaks.

The climbing up to timberline was quite steep, but we found scraps of a climbers trail that shown through the snow. Since the entire gully was full of solid ice we stayed on the north side of the gully all the way to timberline. The climb was then just a slippery climb up snowy and grassy slopes to the crux boulderfield just before Point 13,690. The steep boulderfield was a challenge since the rocks were all covered with hoar frost, but we persevered and made the summit after about six hours. There was no visibility at all from the summit and it was just cold and misty, but still interesting because of all the ice covered rocks.

On the descent the sun began to peek through and the clouds and we got some fantastic views of some of the mountains with swirling clouds around their summits. The descent was pretty challenging as well, but we made it back to the vehicle before sunset. It was a great climb.
