Crossed this summit on my traverse from Elk Tooth to Sawtooth. I really enjoyed the ridge connecting Ooh Lala to 12,277. It has a great little rock amphitheater that you pass through. RT 7:20 from Coney Flats
Route Climbed: South Slopes Date Climbed: 11 September 2005
Ascent from Coney Flats TH via Sawtooth Mountain. There were two registers on top, neither of which bore the name Red Deer Mountain. The CMC register appeared to be lobbying for the name of some guy and the other register wanted the name Spotted Pony Peak. Wonderful views all around.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
