Crazy Peak

Featured photo of Crazy Peak

The highest peak in the Crazy Mountain range of south central Montana. It is composed mainly of good quality granite along with rotten sections and areas of talus and scree. There are three main ridges leading to the summit, with one forming a harrowing razor edged connection to a neighboring peak. The most popular route originates from Blue or Granite Lakes and then up to the west ridge. Once there, it is a long ridge walk to the false summit, which conceals the famous gap, an enjoyable scramble to top
