Ascent Trip Report

I accessed the Blacklead TH from Hwy 12. It took 1.5 hours to drive the 28 miles to the TH on an ok road except for the last mile. Definitely need high clearance for the last mile. After the hike I drove north all the way to Superior in MT. It took 3 hours to drive out that way, but the roads were ok.

The hike took me down to Goat Lake, then up to Williams Peak (I climbed it) down again and up to Rhodes Peak. On the way back down from Rhodes, I climbed Peak 7699 before heading down to the Williams saddle. All hiking stats are combined on this page. I didn't find the lost Billy Rhodes gold mine on this trip, but I want to go back and look around for it some more. Beautiful area. Great views.
