Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up via trail 636 which gains and follows the west ridge after a long drive in from the north. I diverged from it once on a game trail climbing out of Cottonwood Creek but it's mostly easy to follow. There's one small and sparsely signed register at the southern end of the 9200 closed contour which appears to be higher ground than the spot marked on the topo. Great view of the main Crazies to the south with otherwise broad views of central and southwest Montana.
