Ascent Trip Report

Dean and I tried to go up the Mile Creek Trail, but it was closed with a carcass in the drainage that was drawing bears. We hiked up the longer Targhee Creek Trail. This is a long gentle hike up to the pass. We took a short cut down by just following the ridge down to the east. I think we saved at least 2 miles by taking this short cut. If I were to climb it again, I would climb up that way.
