Beautiful south summit of Big Yellow Mountain with a broken down stone house on top. The progenitor of Sugar Camp Ridge, Rose Ridge, Big Butte Ridge and Raccoon Ridge. Lower than the main summit, but distinct nonetheless. Have summitted here 100s of times since 1971. Almost always windy, but beautiful unless the fog rolls in.
