This is a great mountain for hiking, bouldering, etc. I did my first technical rock climbing on this mountain in the 1970s.
Late season summit. Carried a first aid kit, big baggie of gorp, five water bottles, and 17 seventh graders. This is one of the harder climbs that I have done.
Hiked to the summit via the trail and also climbed many of the routes on Elk Slabs. A great mountain!
The family and I hiked the mile or so to the top as practice for some hiking and climbing we were to do later in the season. Beautiful views from the top. I almost stepped on a bison laying in the middle of the trail just over the summit...he won, I moved.
