Ascent Trip ReportThis took exactly two hours round trip, from 5:45 to 7:45am. Used the south ridge route generally preferred on this site. Two 2WD trucks were high up on the mountain, so evidently an ambitious driver/lazy hiker could get within one mile of the top. The view was nice, with a confused sun shooting rays out of and around the wreckage of an overnight storm. The Rocky Mountain Front was visible in the west. I didn't linger, as I was extremely unprepared for the 30s wind chill and had to make it to Bozeman for lunch with my Dad and uncles. 'Big Baldy' is apt!
