Base camped at Ram Lake. Climbed up the West Face after summitting Mount Wood. One of the hardest trips i've done from start to finish.
Climbed Via chicken creek, on our way to mt. Wood and then looping back to the Mystic Lake trail head. 19 hour day, not a bad way to bag my first Beartooth Peaks!
Beautiful September days! Hiked up W Fishtail Creek, camped at the upper lake and ascended the NE ridge/slopes and tagged both peaks. I then ran over to Pyramid Peak and hiked out the Stillwater Plateau. Excellent solo outing
Bushwhack from West Rosebud trail head to pond below Ram lake. Then climbed along western side of Chicken creek drainage aiming for South east corner of plateau. I had a pair of binoculars and used them at about 10500 to scout a route up a chimney that allows a final scramble up and around to the western side of the ridge for the final 50 feet or so to the plateau at 11000. It was very slow going and ended up being 15 hours car to car. I had wanted to tag Pyramid BM while I was up there, but am glad I didn't because the final 60 minutes of bushwhack in the dark was not fun.
