Gallatin County Highpoint Trip Report

My approach was the Dudley Creek trail, as was proposed in the previous report.
This is indeed a much easier option.
I left the Dudley Creek trailhead at 6:30 am, followed the gentle and obvious
trail, and arrived at Dudley Lake 9 am. From the lake, it was an easy hike
north-northwest up the drainage to the prominent saddle, then I followed the
(class 3) ridge west-southwest to the summit arriving at 10 am.
The small wind break is still there.
Made it back to the Dudley Creek trailhead by 12:30 pm.
Trip statistics: 11 miles (round trip), 6 hours (round trip),
elevation gain 10,705 - 6,505 = 4,000 feet.
