Geographic bonus peak!! Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2004
West Pintler has the distinction of being a 'triple-divide.' The peak sheds water west into the Bitterroot, east into the Big Hole and north into the Rock Creek drainages! My summit bid began on the east fork of the Bitterroot. Beautiful hike through a mostly burned landscape. (Date climbed is approx.)
