NIce trip report. ......................... whats old...... ? you youngsters
Awesome. Thanks for the intel. I really appreciate it because information on trails and off-trail routes in the Gros Ventres sure is hard to come by on the internet.
The area around Darwin Peak looks to be navigable. As we dropped down from Shoal Lake, I kept looking over towards Darwin thinking we could easily work our way over to Brewster Lake that way. Looking at it from the Brewster Lake side (my favorite spot of the trip), it looks like there is a lot to explore up there. Beautiful high country.scatman the routes I've looked at a bit all would start on the Eastern side of the range, along Kinky Creek Rd., I believe it's called. I've seen photos of the Gros Ventre River drainage, and I've thought it would be interesting to follow the river up to near Black Peak and then make a loop of it by heading down the Dry Fork of Clear Creek. Looks like trails exist on both sections that follow water. I'd just need to find a pass maybe between Darwin Peak and Palmer Peak to connect the two drainages.
