I currently have 32 State Highpoints done. If all goes well, I hope to have 40 completed by the end of next year.

I am in Washington State, north of Seattle.

Found a trip report for Granite Peak, Montana that I thought you would find interesting.

When we last exchanged emails we both had some concerns about climbing this one, given our limited rock climbing experience. According to these guys, they found another route than the standard one.

Check it out and let me know.

Thanks,

Jack

I just found that trip report a couple of days ago, myself.

It is an intriguing route. Two things:

1) If the amount of boulder-hopping is limited (i.e. by using their recommendation to follow the Sky Top drainage), then camp might become an even closer distance to the summit than Lone Elk Lake. I think Sky Top Lakes might even be plausible, for the first day.

2) This has been a record-snowfall winter season. Leaving in late summer/ early fall might be preferred, to allow for easier access.

So Redwic, does that mean that you would be interested in making an attempt via this route, say mid-August to early Sept?
