Ski Descent - Big Day  Sucess!

Biked up Beattie gultch for about 2,000 vertical then skinned to the summit via the north ridge. We came back down the way we went up. About 20 miles and 6,000 vertical total.

Good day hike  Sucess!

Was told to avoid the Cut people, so I did. Nice day hike to the summit from the north.

Solo Day Hike  Sucess!

Hiked 21 miles from Glen Creek Trail Head to the summit of Electric peak and back. What a day. I left around 9:45 am. Got caught in a short snow storm at the base of the mountain. I reached the summit around 1:50 pm. Returned to my vehicle by 6:15 pm.

Beattie Gulch  Sucess!

Biked up to the NE ridge on the overgrown road from the Beattie Gulch trailhead and hiked from there, great mountain. The old trail wasn't as hard to follow as I thought it would be, though finding it after the small burn area took a bit of luck. Riding back out I startled a black bear with cubs despite making noise, at least it wasn't a Grizzly.

Via Sportmans  Sucess!

Got 19.1 miles for the day starting and ending at the Glen Creek Trailhead. Was glad some other folks were up there to help with some route finding to keep the difficulty at something around class 3 with some serious exposure in a few places. Summited just after noon as the clouds were beginning to build. They threatened and thundered at us all the way back but never quite caught us thankfully. Good day.

Beautiful, hot, summer day.  Sucess!

Hiked from Beattie gulch. Hot day. Didn't see a single other person the whole day. A memorable solo climb.

Longest day hike / summit to date  Sucess!

Started from Bozeman @ 5:30, at the TH by ~6:45. Up by 12:00, back by 5pm. Definitely had to drop the trekking poles near the top, some solid scrambling. Watching some elk spar in Mammoth and hitting the Boiling River on the way out was a fine way to end a long day.

Day Hike

Day hiking Electric was one of the hardest things I've done while working in the park. Amazing hike and scramble.
