Homer's Young Peak info?

by Cotton » Wed Jul 11, 2012 11:43 pm

I'm headed down to Big Hole in 2 weeks and meeting an old friend. He's not a regular mountain climber, but pretty fit. I'm trying to get some info on Homer's Young Peak and having difficulty finding anything concrete? Anyone know approach distance? Elevation gain? Class (2-3?)? Any info or resources appreciated.

Haven't done HY yet, but it's on my list for the next few years...

Based on what little info I've found, topo maps, and GE:

SE ridge route
From Lower Miner Lakes (via trails 187 and 402)-
Distance is approx. 7.0 miles (one way), of which almost 6 is on the trails
Elevation gain is just under 4000 vert ft.
SE ridge shouldn't exceed Class 2, and if so, only briefly Class 3.

Should be a good climb, just leave early to avoid the afternoon T-storms

Return to Northern Rockies (ID, MT, WY)
