This nontechnical summit—the northernmost of the 9,000-foot Bitterroot peaks—stands at the vanguard of the most extensive wilderness complex in the contiguous United States—four million acres of primeval wildlands known collectively as the Greater Salmon–Selway ecosystem."

Trail head sits at 5900 feet. The drive up to trail head is a trip, with some major drop offs on the single car road.

I made it to about 7500 feet within 45 minutes, but then the snow began to cover the trail. The trail is very easy to follow and in great shape. I continued through the heavy snow for another 30 minutes, but soon realized without snow shoes I would not be able to summit. I turned around and met another hiker who was more prepared having snowshoes on his pack. I wished he would of had a second pair so I could of continued forward. I will be back in a few weeks and post more about the hike to the top. I am putting snowshoes on my Christmas list.
