Though this is not difficult, it is a steady climb. There is a nice picnic table in front of the Friendship Tower to enjoy with the family or a loved one, and take a breather before climbing the tower - the only place to get a view since the tower is surrounded by ponderosa pines, as well as aspen, birch and oaks. It's like being embraced in God's creation.
Made it before a large storm came in. It has a nicely built tower on the summit in memory of Teddy.
Really liked the tower, as well as the views of Spearfish Peak, Custer, Peak, Terry Peak, and more.
The Friendship Tower appears to have been restored, as it was in poor shape back when I visited.
Great peak insofar as history goes. Friendship tower is really cool, too. Didn't find a BM, just the tower.
