Chalk Buttes

Hi Sam, great page.
There is an area in far southeastern Montana called the Chalk Buttes. they are west of the Long Pines-Tri Point Lookout on your list. In his "Climbers Guide" Pat Caffrey said the high point was 4215'. There is a butte on the USGS topo higher than 4200', located at degree N 45.70862, W 104.73420, making it the highest point in this range.

Re: Chalk Buttes

sschombel - I originally based this information off official Montana State Library data. It may please you to know they have updated the original information based on your suggestions and I have updated this page with the same information accordingly.

Little Snowies

There is an unnamed point of 6378' at degree N 46.78785, W 109.19898. It is east of Red Hill Road but N of the South Fork of Flatwillow Creek. There is another point of 6270' at N 46.74037, W 109.18650 which almost has the name "Little Snowies" printed on it on the USGS Quad. If it is considered part of the Little Snowies then I believe the one above also should be. There is no distinct geographical separation between the Big and Little Snowies, but they are old traditional names.

other ranges

I believe that the Scotchman Peaks, mainly in Idaho but who do spill over into NW Montana, are a separate range and not part of the Cabinets. I also feel that the Lima Peaks are as distinct from the Beaverheads as the Tendoy Mountains are. I'm very interested to see if anyone has similar opinions or objections. Steve Schombel
