Took off from the 4th of July TH, over Blackmon peak and across the creek to the base of the west ridge. Made the hike up to the ridge and traversed up to the top. Not much snow left on Idaho's tallest lake directly to the east.

Had lofty aspirations of hiking up Frank and Patterson the same day, but the first two really took it out of us.

Went up through the trees from Born Lakes, then took the ridge to the summit. Gorgeous weather and views. Good footing all the way up.

lots of great views of the White Clouds and Lonesome Lake. The ridge scrambling was pretty fun. The scree coming off the ridge not so much

We did Lonesome, climbing the SW face, then descended the south ridge, toured Born Lakes, then went up and over Blackmon. Dodged the predicted thunderstorms on a mostly cool, breezy, and sunny day.
Note: the road up to the saddle under Blackmon has been buried, so it is no longer good walking.

Left the Born lakes trail shortly after descending into Ants Basin. Cut off some trail mileage to the lakes, added a bit of up and down but it seemed pretty quick overall. Climbed the west ridge, which offered solid footing. Awesome views of the Boulder Chain of Lakes, Castle Peak, and the Northern White Cloud peaks from the summit. There was a bit of smoke in the air so I couldn't see the Sawtooths very well. Hit Blackman peak on the way back to the car. Didn't see anyone except at the trailhead.

This interesting peak was the 2nd peak of the day, and the start of a great ridge traverse toward Patterson Peak. The weather was perfect and I was treated to the new sport of ridge jumping. There was a small shelter built at the summit that contained a summit log.

I stayed at the Born Lakes with a couple of friends and summited Patterson the first night. In the morning we headed up Devil's Staircase and took the south ridge to the summit. The route was pretty fun, mostly class 2-3 boulder hopping. Fun peak, and a unique perspective on Idaho's highest lake.

Lonesome was the highlight of three-peak day in the White Clouds. Climbed the southwest face, then traversed the south ridge on the way back down. We tagged Blackman on the way in, then did Patterson on the way out. SawtoothSean and I got a bit of a late start and didn’t leave the trailhead until noon, but we were rewarded with ridgetop views of the sun setting behind the Sawtooths (very cool). Did the last few miles back to the car using headlamps. Here’s a trip-report and some photos.
