mtn earWinter Ascent?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 2, 2009

Okay it wasn't "technically" winter, but it had all the qualities! Started up the East Ridge route at noon and summitted at 5:00 PM. No visibility on upper 2000'. We were plowing through waist deep snow at times. No views, but still well worth the effort!!

A good combination of climbing and route decisions keeps you fully engaged, making Diamond an effort I enjoyed very much.

Climbed the east ridge on a warm day. This is a very enjoyable mountain because of the solid rock and fun scrambling. Almost all of the ridge was dry except for the top which had snow.

Great climb with Dennis, Duane, and Grant. Fun scrambling, but it was not fun dodging the hail on the way down. And that storm came up and then completely disappeared within about 30 minutes or so. Otherwise perfect weather. Amazing!

Nice climb with Bob, Duane, and Grant. Hail and lightning before we could get back to the car.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2006


It was a hot and long day on the mountain. The late start didn't help and my sense of direction was FUBAR as well. But I made to the summit for my first solo 12'er. It was a great learning experience...mostly what not to do.

Was a great day on a great mountain, the east ridge just keeps on going and going. We set a quick pace to try and beat the thunderstorms, but they never materialized. Here’s a write up and some photos.

I finally made it up this one after looking at it daily for many years. It is a great class 3 with a great view on cloudless/smokeless days like today!

Probably the easiest of Idaho's 12ers. It took us a mere 1 hr hour 45 minutes to summit. We went over on the same ridge and did the more interesting Riddler and that took quite a bit longer given we tried a circuit descent and got cliffed several times.

It's about time I climbed this one. Awesome views from Hyndman to Hilgard, Grand Teton to Borah, Cache to Big Creek.

Did this on a cold September day. Actually saw 4 other people on the summit that day...in shorts! They were freezing needless to say. It has some really great class 3 sections.

Climbed with Ken Jones of Washington. Nice climb, with little towers that intervene on the ridge. These little towers make for 50-60 foot sections of class 3 climbing.

Climbed as my 8th peak of the 9 summits record. Had never seen it up close, so I spent some time route finding. Fast, and direct with a great crux that gets the heart pumping.

Will return to spend more time exploring this area!
