Super DaveBig Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 27, 2014

Super Dave

Enjoyed the long but fun southeast ridge option schemed up by John F. Excellent day in the mountains with the Johns, including a fierce but short squall during our descent. Tons of wildlife, in spite of last year's big fire.

boisedocearly spring snowshoe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2013


a low snow year made the south side of this peak accessible. Climbed up the southwest ridge. One sharp spot made me wish I had brought my ice axe. I came down the north side which was much more winter like and came across avalanche debris and mining ruins. Scenic little peak with some good views of the Pioneers and Soldier Mountains.

Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011


Zach and I snuk this peak in today and made it out just as the rain began to fall. Buttercup was surprisingly alpine and had a killer view of the area. We approached via Buttercup Creek.

Nice early/late season climb. I passed all the hunters along the road on the way in. Didn't see anyone on this trail. Great views of the Pioneers. Nice half day hike.

IdahoKidRoute Climbed: North Face/South Ridge Date Climbed: November12th/05  Sucess!


I was confused on the approach due to an early morning snowstorm and made a wrong and early turn that lead me up the north face. This involved the most strenuous 4 hours of my life postholling up to my waist through a very stubborn crust.

I descended down the South Ridge which was a little better. Overall, this is a good hike close to town if you want total wilderness to yourself.
