Quickly climbed the trail in 2hrs and 15min, and took the same time for decent. Skipped work to get one last hike in before school started. Beautiful views from the top of the entire valley.
Hit the trail solo at 5:40am to escape one of the many 90+ degree days in Bozeman this summer. Was surprised by how hot it was at summit even at 9:15. Lots of annoying bugs too.
A great day trip. I've climbed this multiple times, and it can be a great ski. Views over the backside are impressive and a bit of a surprise - who knew there were so many mountains back there?
Outstanding ski descent.
I had been looking forward to this peak all summer. It turned out to be awesome. The next day was the start of my 7th grade year at the local Anderson School. My heels started hurting on the way down and got to the point where they were sore until 2 weeks later.
Liesurly 3hrs up, 2 down, handy to town.
Nothing like a mountain so close to home you can climb it after work!
We left around 11:00 in the morning and hiked up an icy, glossed over trail until just below the saddle. From there we climbed up the snow and rock to the ridge highpoint between Elephant and Blackmore and then followed the ridge to the top of Blackmore. It was a very warm day for 10,000 ft. in November. In fact, we were wearing short-sleeve shirts on the summit.
Beautiful day and climb. 55 degrees at trailhead, around 40 on summit. Switchbacks are tiring, but an extremely fun climb for spectacular views. The October snow made for beautiful landscapes of Peak 10,031 and Mount Bole.
35 degrees on top, 30 mph winds and occasional snow storms! Beautiful views from the saddle and peak.
Great trainer for the ridge run, great skiing, beautiful wildflowers with a commanding view of the Gallatin Valley. Simply Incredible.
This is a beautiful peak, with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and the Gallatin Valley. I've skied this one a couple of times; great turns down the north face in sweet Montana pow!!
Did not go for the summit. Just doing some hiking. Beautiful area.
We hiked up to the summit on a beautiful day. Afterwards we did Elephant Mountain. This is a great hike in a really nice area.
