Ugh. Shale is my nemesis. Gorgeous views, but I preferred Volcano. I usually have more to say, but that's all I got. Momma says if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. (I'm a spoiled brat.)

SO, this peak. Yeah this one. We took the directions on this site to hike this peak. We got there and thought, hmmmm, how do we approach this. Well we basically found a minor spur ridge that lead up to the main ridge just north of the main peak. Can I get poor life choices for 1000 Alex. I think that starting from the northwest ridge might be best and follow ridgeline. Also it looks like it might be easier to do from the southeast side of the range. There was a road that came up into that area and looked doable. Anyhow there was a TON of shale basically going straight up to the peak. It was one to knacker you, but the views! Gorgeous! Stunning! It was an on and off cloudy, some snow, lots of sun, lots of wind kinda day. Totally worth it. I might love these mountains.

This was the first peak I climbed in the SI range. I did it on a very hot summer day with temps hovering over a hundred degrees. It took a little route finding to decide the best approach for the summit. I climbed it from the Northwest side. I saw a herd of Bighorn Sheep near the base of where I started climbing. I've seen this herd twice before. This is the most desolate place I've ever been. I have been here nearly all day several times and not seen another vehicle.
