Trip Report

Indefatigable is the first mountain that I climbed as a lead. Steve and I summitted on our first try in the fall of 1999. Indefatigable is usually closed to hikers at least a few times a year because there is a sow grizzly who likes the upper part of the mountain and uses it with her cubs. (Update: The trail is now permanently closed on a voluntary basis. I could see it being closed legally at some point.)
