Awesome day in the Two Medicine high country. From the Scenic Point Trail, I made my way to the saddle south of Appistoki Peak. Followed the ridge to the summit of Mount Henry, then on to Mount Ellsworth. It took less than an hour to get to the top of Never Laughs from there. The descent to the Aster Park drainage started off very well on well-worn game trails. The trails lead me out onto some cliffs that made me uncomfortable, so on two instances I had to backtrack slightly and descend to easier terrain. Eventaully made my way to a very well-worn climber's trail that lead from the nose of Never Laughs down to the maintained trail overlooking Aster Park.

Scenic Point - Medicine Peak - Henry - Ellsworth - Never Laughs
'Descended' to Never Laughs from Ellsworth
Last peak of three for the day. Summitted after Ellsworth.
Made mistake and took wrong gully down west face. Had a horrendous down climb.
Blustery cold day. Thanks for the route info about the old trails FlatheadNative! Made the climb much more enjoyable!
With Blake Passmore and friends Becky and Isaac Neumann
No, Never Laughs was not laughing. I think he had a cold that day. At least it was windy and cold. Our fingers went numb until we dug out the heavy gloves just before Ellsworth. Also did Appistoki starting from the Scenic Point trail. Nice outing with James.

Summitted after doing Appistoki's twin peaks, Point 8650 and its neighbor and Ellsworth. Climbed with montanarendonk. Great weather and a fantastic ridgewalk. Descended to Buttercup Park Trail.
