Ascent Trip ReportI approached from the north (Hill City) and exited toward the south, using Edward Earl's excellent directions both ways. The only discrepancy noted was for East Slate Rd, which Edward stated was also CR-7309, but which was signed as Forest Route (FR) 300, but it was obviously the road described by Edward. One advantage in exiting toward the south is that you get an excellent view of the Crazy Horse Memorial, still very much a work in progress, as Medicine Mountain road descends toward US-16/385. The hike itself is an easy jaunt cross country for 1/4 mile, with some fences and blowdown to deal with near the summit.
