From my hike armed with GPS, I'd mention that this hike is about 4 miles long round trip with 1100' of gain when you follow the trail up and down. FYI.

Jeremy,

Thanks for the note.

Since there are typically many ways up a mountain, I've come to avoid any reference to trail mileage/gain on the actual mountain page.

Take a look at the route page I posted for this peak, though.

http://www.summitpost.org/route/411635/monument-creek-route.html

The way I went, both GPS and map indicate

Approximate Roundtrip Mileage: 2.25 miles
Approximate Elevation Gain: 1,000 feet

Is is possible you took another route than we did? If so, maybe your route could be posted as "Monument Creek Route -- Variation".

???

Sarah - I believe I went further up the creek to the saddle farther north. I added a photo/topo map to the page. A bit longer, but a little more gentle ascent following the drainage. Pretty, though! :)
