High alpine, high exposure and high risk. Stunning views of the Elkhorns and on a clear day the Cascades a few hundred miles west. Lots of shale throughout, and there are several sections where a mistake can be extremely costly. Eagles, hawks, mountain goats, mountain lions and more. Several alpine lakes await if you need a break.
