|Peak:||Missouri Mountain (14er)|
|Route:||Northwest Ridge from Missouri Gulch|
|Date of Information:||09/16/2012|
No snow at all on the trail. Some places on the lower slopes got muddy as the day heated up. Careful on some extremely steep sections on the ridge from the false summit to the real summit. These sections will test the limits of grip of your shoes when descending. Poles were extremely useful. If not, get on your butt and slide.
