SawtoothSeanWith the kids  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2012

SawtoothSean

Took my son and his friend up the steep SE slopes- lots of Class 3 with just enough exposure to make it thrilling for these boys. 8 hrs RT- caught boat at 5:30. 10 F in the morning, but very nice in the sunshine most of the day. All kinds of junk in summit canister and old register missing before 2007.

awilsondcRoute Climbed: NE ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2012

My first Sawtooth peak in over eight years! Haven't had much chance to bag peaks in Idaho since I moved away, but I was in Boise for a couple days and decided to summit the Mogul. I took the NE ridge up and there were certainly some route finding challenges. The route is pretty solid class 3 with class 4-5 if you want. When climbing the ridge, it's a good idea to stay to left most of the time. I got ambitious and tried to climb up a little too early and got cliffed out. On the way down, I took the big gully to the east. Initially the way down was faster with lots of boulder hopping and scree skiing, but the bushwack portion was much worse so not sure I'd recommend it. Also, go early in the day. I took the 7am shuttle across and the morning light made for some amazing photos. 3 hours up, 2 hours down.

Scrambling Man

Took the boat across Redfish, jumped on the trail to about 8000 ft. Bushwacked down and then up to the pond. Went up the East side and then connected to the NE ridge near the top. Fun scramble on big boulders from there. Took the avalanche shoot down-bad idea, too overgrown and didn't save any time.

SawtoothSeanBig Snow Steps  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2006

SawtoothSean

Climbed via the Chockstone Couloir. The couloir was in great shape- steps were easily kicked and going was fast. After reaching the saddle, we traversed around to the southeast side and found a Class 3 chimney to the summit. With snow covering much of the shaded gulleys, route finding was crucial. We made the summit in 3.5 hours and the descent took another 3.5 hrs.
