There is evidence of presence upon GGR and crossings upriver which progressed, one might assume, onto that terrain. It remains as horses for courses, unfortunately and reflects upon archaeology, which was and remains hit and miss in respect its practice. Which continues to develop theory based upon significant events supposedly related to Deep Ravine.
If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck ~ it is probably a goose.
Its a hill just northeast of Ford B-2. Walter Camp referred to it as either "Greasy Grass Hill" or as "Cut Bank Hill". This hill ocmmanded the low ground just east of Ford B-2. Anyone looking to control the crossing at that ford would need to occupy that hill. According to Fred Grant and Fred Server, several (about 3 or 4) of Custer's troopers were found dead on the slopes of that hill. If so, they were likely removed during the burials.
"The more I see of movement here (Little Big Horn Battlefield), the more I have admiration for Custer, and I am satisfied his like will not be found very soon again.”

Thought. The seminal reference 'Where Custer Fell' shows two Curtis images of the three Crows on what is given as the bluffs above Medicine Tale Coulee. One certainly is but the other was taken looking downriver from the high ground of Greasy Grass Hill, where White Man Runs Him crawled up to the standing Custer who was banging away at Hostiles careless enough to show themselves. Custer was up there but the confusions over Benteen meeting three blackbird's in a pie, has obscured this important location. It would be fun and games getting wounded down that pimple.
