Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.
Missouri Mountain is in the central Sawatch Range, and is usually climbed from Missouri Gulch. It is considered slightly harder than its neighbors Mt. Belford and Mt. Oxford, because of the steep loose dirt and scree the route must climb to gain the ridge. Missouri Mountain has a rugged north face, unlike its more rounded neighbors.
Thanks to Kirk Mallory for this description.
