Ascent of Swan Peak in 2017
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||9289 ft / 2831 m|
Ascent Trip ReportMet Henry Meyer on the summit, a cabin builder who lives in Swan Valley, said he'd been up Swan once before, in the early 80s. In those days Swan was much more demanding, as there was no trail up Squeezer Creek. Jim Valentine, the guy who clears the Squeezer Creek trail, had been up the week before, according to the register. The trail makes a huge difference, still a harder day than Holland Peak, I thought. 10.5 hours round trip. One of my favorites of the summer, very scenic.
