A minor summit in the section of the Northern Absarokas that spills out into Montana around Cooke City, Crown Butte is still a worthwhile objective, especially if you meet it under winter conditions as my friend Tim and I did.

Because it is pretty easy to access and routes to the top are short, Crown Butte is one of those peaks that is great for a rest day, an end-of-day quickie after having done something bigger and harder earlier, or an onjective when weather appears unstable.

Views include numerous neighboring peaks, of course, but they also stretch to iconic Yellowstone Ecosystem peaks such as Pilot and Index, and they range into the remote, lightly visited backcountry of northeastern Yellowstone National Park, the Beartooths, and the Montana Absarokas.
