|Date:||Saturday, June 5, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6294 ft / 1918 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI hiked up Mickey Butte from Mickey Hot Springs. Nice hike across sagebrush desert to the unnamed drainage on the south side of Mickey Butte. Half way up the drainage I came upon a grassy area that was freshly laid in and something had been gnawing on the rear legs of a sheep. I kept going up to the Mickey/6275 saddle and then up to the summit. After tagging Mickey Butte, I hiked across the saddle to point 6275 and then came down the next drainage west of the one I went up. I saw 3 live sheep while coming down this drainage. Nice hike on a cloudy windy day. I combined all the hiking stats on the totals for Mickey Butte.
