Took 5 hours and 45 minutes to the top but I aimed for the eastern summit first, then ridge walked over to the west side. The wire next to the nominal trail was visible, but only after you get past the shack and get out onto the scree slope. Just under four hours down.
I live in Anaconda, been up the peak a hand full of times in all seasons. leave no trace ethics are lacking at northwest lakes. please clean up if you can.
Gotta check it out - everyone else has. And it's well worth the effort. Anaconda residents are lucky to have such a big mountain in their backyard. Walking the long east-west ridge on a beautiful summer day is a lot of fun! Now I'll want to give it a shot in winter.
The first of many winter trips with rmick25. Sledding down snowmobile tracks from Hearst Lake made for bobsled like descent. Great summit with views of the Anaconda/Pintler Wilderness clad in white.
This is a long trek from the outskirts of town. A very large summit cairn shaped like a throne sits on Haggin along with a couple of summit registers. A quick look at the register entries indicates that this is the most climbed A-P summit.
After years of talking about doing it we done did it. Although cold, a great winter climb. Brought sleds into Hearst Lake. Rode them out most of the way. Good Fun
