Route Climbed: Harney Peak-Willow Creek Trail (Northern Route) Date Climbed: 08/17/2001  Sucess!

Hiked from the Willow Creek Horse Camp to the summit of Harney Peak on a beautiful summer day. Took about 2 hours to reach the summit. Had lunch at the top and then headed down. This was my third ascent of Harney, and the second time up the northern route. I definitely recommend the northern route for people wanting a little more of a challenge, and a lot more solitude along the way. I basically used Harney Peak to acclimate myself to climb Cloud Peak, WY (13,167 ft) a couple of days later, since I live in Illinois.
