North Ramp  Sucess!

Took the easiest route up the mountain from the road that goes past Cataract Lake, making for a short hike with good views most of the way up. The Tobacco Roots are a wonderful mountain range.

West Gully  Sucess!

Climbed with Geoff and Nathan. Excellent day. A little soft and melting snow up higher, but didn't cause problems. What a great peak. Did not traverse to Jefferson this time.

Overnighter  Sucess!

Met up late with a buddy at the TH around 11:30, with plans to stay overnight at the lake. Hiked in with a full ruck (blew my wad a bit til dropping off most camping gear at Hollowtop Lake). Summit via the draw to the saddle by 5:30, Jefferson by 6:30, back to camp by 8pm. Between being sick, hiking in the heat of the day, and getting turned around bushwhacking multiple times, probably extended the trip longer than necessary. Fly fishing those alpine lakes was gorgeous and worth the effort. *Recommend going left of Hollowtop Lake and following the slightly more worn in trail before bushwhacking the rest. Much rock hopping. Also recommend staying to the far left of the draw on the way to the saddle - a lot more grass and less ankle / leg breaker rocks

Hollowtop  Sucess!

Southwest ridge from Hollowtop Lake. Awesome introduction to the Tobacco Roots!

Hollowtop  Sucess!

Fun afternoon hike. Went up the ramp NE of the peak, about 2 and a half hours car to summit. Crazy windy on top but otherwise really good weather. The road was really washed out and pretty hairy in a few sections, but managed to get the explorer all the way up to where it narrows down to just 4 wheelers.

Hollowtop  Sucess!

Hiked up the west side, via a gulley that had recently slide, lots of debris. Snowboarded another gulley NW from the summit. Fantastic range with numerous adventure possibilities.
