First to Review

The last 7ish miles of road getting to the West Fork Upper Pahsimeroi Trailhead are terrible. We did it with a pickup truck, and I know a guy who did it in a Subaru, but I would recommend using a 4-wheeler or ATV if you can. The “Leatherman Trail” follows the Pass Lake Trail for about 1.6ish miles. The “Leatherman Trail” then forks to the East, but it is a little tricky to see where that happens, so get close to the River and you will see a log bridge that needs crossing. Then this trail, I think, goes to Leatherman Pass. But, after about another mile (about 2.5 miles total hike distance) we went off the trail and went about 200 ft to the base of the Northeast gully of Leatherman. There are trails up the Gully, but some are probably game trails. The first 2.25 miles of the hike are moderately steep; the trail got a lot steeper at the base of the gully. There are few areas in the gully that are less steep and even level out which are great places to rest a bit. There were patches of snow in the lower part of the gully and then almost complete snow cover after 11,000 ft; glad I decided to use my trekking poles. The snow slowed us down going up, but was super fun sliding down the snow on the descent after summiting. Took 4.8 hrs to ascend, and 3 hrs to descend. Started the hike about 7:10 am; summitted right at 12:00 pm; ate lunch; back at the vehicle about 3 pm.
