Ascent Trip Report

Not much to add to the excellent directions on the other trip report, but there's now a sign on the road to indicate the trail (Crater Ice Cave Trail #31), so no bushwhacking or looking for cairns required. Near the top I lost the trail in the snow drifts, but pretty easy cross country to the top.

Nice little detour from driving home for Thanksgiving, and pretty nice views of the Beartooth Range and you can see all the way to Crazy Peak.
