Ascent Trip Report

I started at 6:30 AM, reached the top at 10:15, and got back to the car at 2PM. I pushed myself pretty hard on this one. The weather was great, there was a cool breeze at the summit, but it was not at all unpleasant. There were a couple of friendly marmots wandering around the summit, no doubt looking for handouts. Great views all around. Missouri Basin is really spectacular.
