Ascent Trip ReportI contacted the land owner and easily got permission to climb the W Butte on the W Butte ranch. From Boyes, MT head south on the gravel road about 8 miles, to the sign saying ridge road, then stay to the left and follow the ridge road until you come to the butte. You will go past the butte and see a road on the left labelled "W Ranch" Take this and you will find a skid road leading to the top with the towers. I chose to walk the road to the top, but a four wheel drive or high clearance vehicle could have kept going to the top. Short hike to the top, fairly easy.
