A very fun scramble up the ridge. Summited with another solo climber and a group of 4 from Wa. I did Galena Peak the day before which made for sore legs to start, and a grim death march back to the car. I love it! My first 12er!

great day for a hike of Hyndman. My dog and I completed out first Idaho 12er. The trail was very well marked, I would definitely recommend staying to the right while on the ridge climbing towards the summit. Nothing like sitting up there for 45 minutes with the summit all to ourselves and enjoying the view of the surrounding ranges and the basin.

Made it up with my 11 year old son finally after stopping at the saddle a few years ago. He took longer to come down than up from the saddle.

Mountains Forever... that is what you see from the summit! My first Idaho 12 with eight to follow (hopefully). Still some snow but it can be avoided if desired.

Had fine weather and a fun little scramble up the south/southeast side of the peak. Great views of the lost river and white clouds.

Just me and my 9 year old son. We made it to the saddle and is was getting a little later than I'd hoped for so we turned around. We didn't see another person the entire day.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2008
Too hot! Napped in the shade above the Yert for hours. Late afternoon, hiked to the lake at 9,000' and went for a swim (over 90 degrees). Spent the night beside this pond. 2nd day up to the top. Spent 4 hours on top. Back down to the pond for another swim and night. Big electrical storm that night! Hiked out 3rd morning. This is the easy and fun way to hike!!!

Great day with a couple of co-workers on our now annual "big mountain" hike/climb (did Borah last year). Over 1.5 hours on the summit in warm windless conditions. Very nice area. Highly recomended.

Once we actually got to the trailhead, it was a fantastic day. Melissa and I enjoyed the views the entire way.

Great climb on a warm 4th of July weekend! Brian T and I took the long trek upward toward the mountain. Still a good bit of snow in and around the basin. We approached the saddle with a high traverse to the left of the basin in some loose rock. Would have been better to stay slow and trudge through the snow because it was actually still pretty firm. It did make for a great glissade on the way back. From the saddle the ridge looked a little intimidating but step by step scrambling we made it to the summit. The views were awesome and we could see the Lost River Range clearly. We watched a lightning storm in the Devil's bedstead below. After the summit, the six mile return seemed to take forever!

This was #2 of the 9 12r's. We hope to get some more in this summer.

The driving directions and description are a little off, so just turn left a mile outside of Triumph and proceed 4.5 miles to the trailhead. There is no road closure sign or gate as described in the original directions but the trailhead is at the North Fork of the Hyndman Creek and there is parking and an well maintained outhouse there.

My 6th (of 9 total) Idaho 12k + high peak. Hyndman is actually considered the easiest technically, but I think the longest distance wise. This is actually my 4th attempt on the peak funny enough. First time was just after moving to idaho and went up the wrong canyon to start. Second time was in the spring and the snow was too deep. 3rd time was late fall and got into some unexpected snow conditions... this time it was cool and crisp - perfect hiking conditions. Made it up and back in a little over 7 hours with a 30 min break on the summit.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


Disappointing, altitude got me at 10,800 and had to turn around. Was feeling fine at 10K and it just came on quick. Felt fine at 10K on the way down. Weird, wild stuff. Oh well, the mountain isn't going anywhere. Beautiful area. Rode bike for the first 3 miles. Very fun ride back to the car. Left trailhead at 8:45, turned around at noon, back to the bike at 1:20, 11 and half minutes to the car from there. I will be back!

Caleb EOC and I planned a three peak three day adventure in the great state of idaho. The walk in in at predawn and the alpenglow on the trifecta of Hyndman, Old Hynd, and Cobb was absolutly gorgeous. We were completly taken a back by the beauty of this area. We were efficiant neverless as we scrambled up Hyndman and soaked in the views, descended 2000ft of talus and were basking in the alpine meadows. Good Times.

Well, I climbed Borah peak that morning so I took it slow, starting at 4 pm. Summited around 8:30 under perfect weather just before sunset. Hiked out with headlamp and over 10,000 feet climbed that day! Report, pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/idaho_climbing/pioneer_mountains/hyndman_peak_212.htm
