Hill features

Regarded as the hardest state high point after Denali/McKinley in Alaska. A challenging multi-day peak with several brutal approach options, the most common being a 12 mile hike in from Phantom Creek via the aptly named arctic tundra of Froze to Death Plateau, where most will set up camp. Realistically this mountian requires two days minimum. Afternoon lightning storms are very common in summer. Heavy summer snow falls are also a liability. Other approaches come via Mystic Lake.

Approach notes

No permits required. No camping restrictions. Bears are relatively common, so care with food. Grizzlies are occasionally spotted, but are not generally drawn to humans here. Bears do not go up onto Froze to Death plateau. Excellent fishing. Tons of campsites, the Jimmy Joe campsite is free, but does not have water, except the river (purify). Red Lodge is the nearest hub of civilisation. Mountain easily reached if heading to Yellowstone, with many glorious peaks in the surrounding area. Best guidebook is actually a map, which has cunning colour photos of key route areas and an extremely detailed set of route description for 5 climbs, try: www.firstascentpress.com
