Ridge traverse Including Agassiz, Spread Eagle, Lamotte, A-1, Kletting, and Hayden Peak as a loop, starting and ending at Hayden Pass.
Why? I have been hiking those mountains for over 10 years linking them up, finding the way to make it a loop. I completed the loop six years ago in a 2 day stretch, and swore I would never do it again.
Well…3 years ago I wanted to do it in a day, failed first attempt, 2nd attempt I had back problems. So this year after training and completing the Great Divide, I thought why not. So I went for it and completed it.
Ron completed the loop in just over 16hr, but did not return to the TH - ended at a camp by McPheters Lake instead. The complete TH-to-TH FKT awaits completion, and is about 47km.
Can this loop be done in either direction? And it doesn't go up Ostler Peak, does it?
Heading out tomorrow (7/19) for a little adventure. Will be using a spot tracker and garmin watch
My friend and I are going to check out this loop tomorrow (8/8) morning. Using watches, following the gpx track posted on this page, looks like fun!
