Story by Charles Homme from Fargo, ND, United States, submitted on 25/01/2008
Your map isnt complete. You seemed to the the climb at the 9300 foot lookout. Beartooth Pass highway climbs to nearly 11,000 feet with the most difficult part of the climb above 10,000 feet. Plus there are two summits and the back side of pass is just a brutal. Please recalibrate this climb by actually ending it at one of the summits.
