Overview

At an elevation of 12,800 feet, Granite Peak is the highest point of the state of Montana and the 10th highest state highpoint of the US. Some claim it’s the second-most difficult state highpoint climb (after Denali). Elers Koch, James C. Whitham and R.T. Ferguson made the first ascent in 1923.

Most climbers take 2 to 3 days, with a stop on Froze-to-Death Plateau. Another route is the non-technical Southwest Couloir route, coming from Cooke City.
