Tomorrow I will attempt to activate Granite Peak, Montana in a straight through push. I expect the entire process to take between 14-18 hours. I will be facing a 24 mile hike round trip not including the 800 feet of 5th class climbing. I expect to start hiking at 0430 MST ( 1100 UTC ) Hopefully seeing summit around 1200 MST ( 1900 UTC ). I plan on a maximum time on summit of 2 hours. Chasing is much appreciated, this summit is considered to be the most challenging in the lower 48 states. Please keep an eye out for my spot and wish me luck!
My kit will include everything in the photo attached.
