Hiked up the standard route w/ rmick in the middle of the night. Sunrise hitting the Bitterroot Mtns. was spectacular!! Hanging out in the lookout tower with the spirits, smoke, and good friends was awesome. Made this hike a couple of other times with similar pleasant results.

26may10 - Climbed to the summit on snow again, this time with a couple of friends. They both bemoaned that they didn't have their skis with them. Dang!

23jun09 - Though I've lost count of the number of times I've visited this summit, this was the first time I made the effort to get there while there was still snow on the route.

Hiked to the top in the middle of the night. Hung out in lookout tower with buddies playing cards until sunrise. Magnificent!

This was one of my first summit hikes. I partially blame (more accurately, thank) St Mary for my addiction to peak bagging!

Turned out to be a great day on the mountain. Sunny and 70's.

Not the best day for a hike since it was smokey out, but it was good to get outside just the same. My girlfriend ended up knowing the guy on duty in the fire tower, so we shot the bull for a while up top. The view is supposed to be nice so I'll have to go back at some point.

May 24, 2005: Doug, Kevin and I summited, set off a wet slab on the northeast bowls, then decided to traverse over to the south bowls. Unbelievable day, Kevin did it without snowshoes!

May 8, 2004: Jay, Phil, Mike and I made it to the last switchback before the trailhead - tree down and no chainsaw! This is actually a great place to climb/return because it is steep! Lots of photos on the summit - we were all land surveyors that summer - the "surveyin' jerks trip."

May 9, 2003 Solo trip (with my dog Teewinot) to the summit in crappy weather. First day out on my new Alpine Touring skis. The snow conditions were great, but being by myself, I stuck to the ridgeline and out of the bowls.

June 29, 2002 Weekend backcountry trip with my brother and our dogs. Camped at Upper McCalla Lake on Friday night, climbed the south slope to the summit at sunset and then glissaded back to camp. Saturday we got stuck in the tent all day while the storm tore the tent apart. Sunday we got turns in the south bowl. This was all on alpine skis - we carried our boots in!

July 4, 2000 One of my first real mountain hiking trips. I saw a guy carry his telemark skis all the way to the summit for about 10 turns down to McCalla Lake, which is where I got the idea for subsequent adventures. Great times!
