Standard route. Lots of snow up higher. Fun to hike up the hard set snow. Had the whole peak to myself. Great day.

bitterrootadventureFirst time up Little St Joe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012
We started off thinking we were going to hike up Sheafman Creek, but the further down the valley we got it seemed like the smoke was getting thicker so we stopped to do Little St Joe Peak. It was a tough and hot day, but made it up. Needed to get acclimatized more at the beginning though.

Skinned up the ridge with a headlamp to the RM cabin the night before, stayed with some very nice folks there and had a great time in the cozy cabin. Continued to the top the next day in strong windy conditions, but some pretty excellent views. Snow was pretty crusty up high from the wind but decent skiing in the trees on the east slope. I bet there are quite a few folks out there that have been up this one way too many times to remember!

A good steep trail up. Late start kept us from continuing on to St Joe.

Fun ski on a clear day! Had to call my friend, who's at work, from the summit to rub it in.

A well deserved rest stop on the way to and From St Joseph Peak. I got to see epic views of the Kootenai Fire on the descent.

Another fantastic Bitterroot summit. If I had to pick ONE area to seek my adventures in for the rest of my life, I'd have to choose the Selway-Bitterroot country. P.S. This is not the exact date of my climb. (My apologies to the purists)

vernon's birthday climb. unfortunately the regular joe part got white room snowed out. still a fun day out with mike hoyt and vernon. the trail didn't seem too grunt-y to me. can see how this would be a fun backcountry ski destination.

Climbed with Meleah and Mike Hoyt; good trail most of the way, but it's a grunt! We had intended to also do Saint Joseph Peak, but ran into spitting snow around 8,000 feet, which by the time we hit the summit (9,033'), was steady, with a cold wind and almost no visibility. At this point it was our unanimous decision to turn around--footing was quite uncertain, Saint Joseph's was still two miles away via a ridge that gets pounded with wind, plus that summit was still over 500 feet higher than where we were. It's always difficult to turn back, but it was a no-brainer--absolutely the right call!

A fabulous place for bc skiing. We arrived at summit a bit late...looked at St. Joe, but decided to do it a different day.

This was one of my favorite outings of the year. It also motivated me to take on Saint Joseph the following year.

17jun09 - Climbed to the summit for the first time on snow. I just wanted to see what it was like!

4sep08 - Planned to climb Saint Joseph with Vernon and Meleah, but turned back at the summit of Little St Joe because of bad weather. The falling snow was making the footing hazardous and we decided it was best not to push our luck.

12sep06 - Used Little St Joe route during successful attempt on St Joseph.

8aug06 - Used Little St Joe route during unsuccessful attempt on St Joseph.

7sep05 - Used Little St Joe route during reconnaissance trip to determine possible routes to St Joseph's summit.

2005 - One earlier trip to Little St Joe's summit, but I've forgotten the exact date.
