Any stats on the Boundary-Montgomery hop?

So what's the distance, elevation gain, and difficulty of the terrain for the hop from Boundary to Montgomery?



Thanks--Jeff

Re: Any stats on the Boundary-Montgomery hop?

It's about three-quarters of a mile one-way, with maybe a 300' descent from Boundary and a 500' ascent to Montgomery. Terrain is loose class 2-3, with several large outcrops on the crest to block the way. In times of no snow, the jaunt would be relatively quick, but powdery drifts make make the steep ascent to Montgomery quite annoying.
