Eight of us left the parking area for Swan Peak, in the Swan range south of Big Fork. We followed the climberís trail to Lower Squeezer Lake and then traveled cross country to Upper Squeezer Lake. The next 2000 feet of elevation is gained by ridge travel up to the summit. Six made it to the summit while one fished at the upper lake. One stopped short of the top and returned with the group as we headed down. We were all happy to share in Franz Barthelís sixty second summit of his 62th year. The Swan Peak climb is about 17 miles with over 5000 feet elevation gain.
