    I’d guess this is also an alternative way back from Spanish Peaks to Andesite Mountain (combined with Thunder Wolf 4) for those who’d prefer not to use Southern Comfort 4.

      There is an access trail to it, which I think originates at the bottom of Lewis & Clark.

        According to the new map it’s a single black right under it

          That seems to be a new trail to get to this lift. The primary way is a cat track which starts near the Sacajawea.
