Absaroka Range

A probable first ascent of Mt. Index in N. W. Park County was made on September 24th by G. Haas, J. Makowski, P. D. Smith, from a timberline camp on the N. W. side. An involved route led from the saddle connecting with Pilot Peak, and the final 150 ft. of the crumbling summit block was climbed by a chimney on the W. face. Descent was made by the same route: reasonably safe and the easiest that could be found.
