Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2002  Sucess!

A nice afternoon hike. Only problems were a bit of route-finding (some maps show a trail heading to the southwest side, but it's hard to find and faint in places) and the barbed wire fence going up on the West Ridge. There's actually a place called Paradise Valley just to the north that is a Wilderness cow pasture - how nice. Cow patties litter most of the slopes around this peak. Trip Report

Route Climbed: Soutwest side Date Climbed: July 28, 2001 & June 8, 2003

2001camped with extended family along Clark Fork. On the climb met one other person on the summit and saw two other people along the trail. I wasted about an hour looking for the climbers trail too far south. A hot dusty trip.

2003 was a muddy trip. Again wasted about an hour looking for the climbers trail. Found it and then lost it again in patches of snow, mud and blow down. Spent most of the trip cross country. On the descent lost the trail and picked up Disaster Creek trail about a quarter mile north the trail junction. Saw nobody else the entire day. Interesting trips. Pretty easy navigation.
