Ascent Trip Report

We left the Clearwater lake Loop Road southwest of Wolverine Peak at about 4,880' and ascended the ridge which heads ENE to point 8535. From point 8535 we first went north to Wolverine Peak where we found a touch of 3rd class to gain the summit. The ascent ridge is scenic after about 1,500' vertical and the divide ridge is really nice. After Wolverine we returned to 8535 and continued on to Ptarmigan Mountain, an easy walk. The combo is a great ridge walk in the Swan range.
