“Hike to the Peak (its not as hard as it seems)”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

My experience in hiking the peak has taught me a few things, always summit before 1 in the afternoon and be on your way back down before two. It gets really windy after this time on the peak in the summer and when walking a knife edge ridge wind can play a factor.

for an easy hike take white wing to the top of swift current and follow the summit trail signs (bone crusher to altoe ridge to gullies traverse to otterslide)

for a fast hike up the peak take calamity jane to the top swift current and follow the summit trail signs

DO NOT try to descend the peak in a different way then you hiked up, it will be a day ruiner
