derekpercAnother party??  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2017

We wanted to spend a couple nights in the remote basin south of Goat. Right after we settled on a spot a party of 5 came up behind us we just couldn't believe it. The 2 North Fork Hyndman basins see only a handful of visitors each year, and this was a weekday! When we set out in the morning, as soon as we passed their camp they started off toward Goat directly beside us. Generally if you climb any Idaho peak other than Borah and Hyndman you are guaranteed to have it to yourself. This was quite a coincidence.

We let them get ahead and went to check out the spires along the Goat/Duncan saddle. Two of us climbed Florians Nudl from the west without ropes. The exposure was moderate, but once at the top I took one look at the final refridgerator-sized rock and said "Nope"- since climbing it meant deadly exposure on the north side. My much bolder brother-in-law (I'm afraid of heights) stood atop it and jumped off to the adjacent rock to descent. I'm not recommending any of this, but that's our tale.

This is a long approach but it's absolutely worth it. Did not see any goats but there were signs that they had been there recently.

One of my favorite climbs period. Awesome hike up the valley, then a great scramble to the summit.

What an amazing place. we climbed this from a base camp in the north fork of Hyndman creek. the final sustained climbing is one of the best scrambles in the state.

Long but beautiful fall day in the Pioneers. Great scenery along the way, fun ridge traverse to finish off the climb. Highly recommended. Trip Report

pretty darn long hike. The ridge traverse was quite fun. Great route finding by Splattski on the traverse. There was not any snow on the traverse

We had a beautiful day, and the predicted thunderstorms evaporated in the wind. The traverse to the true summit looked worse than it actually was.
We think we saw George and John on Devil's Bedstead East.

A very long but absolutely gorgeous climb. The traverse between the two summits was tricky due to some snow left over from a few weeks before. But so far, one of my favorite climbs.
