Ascent Trip Report

Kate and I had just a few hours to get out, so Guffey Butte seemed like a good choice. We followed the usual route up, but decided to traverse over to the adjacent plateau before heading down. Neither of us had been up on that plateau before, so it was fun to descend a different route. A break in the cliff band made it possible to get down off the plateau without any real scrambling, class 2 at most. Very nice short hike in the Owyhees...
