Josh, Jonathan and I made the summit attempt on a very warm day. We got to the main false summit before turning back due to time, high winds, and low water. Postholing to the knee every step, and the upper thigh every fifth step made for a LONG ascent up the snowfield. Fortunately Josh and his hydraulic legs were there to blaze the trail for us! We'll be back to settle the score soon! Pete Creek isn't too bad in early spring.

Pete creek is... Interesting. Its a bit of a head scratcher going up and total misery on the way down. One slope of bad scree but other then that its good rock. Views from the top were amazing. No goats...

Second attempt at Breitenbach. First attempt landed me in a different valley and a summit, and first route ascent, of No Regret Peak. Admittedly we weren't good about taking maps with us all the time.

The approach felt like it went on forever on the way out and the false summits the same way. Overall a nice day. The climb was easier for us than we expected it to be.

Camped at the East Fork of the upper Pahsimeroi. Followed the trail up the East Fork that goes right in front of the awesome North Face. Followed the trail up and over the saddle to Dry Creek. From there looped around the base mountain and wet up the East -> South East Face and then followed the east ridge to the summit.

Left a prayer flag I found blown off the top Bald Mountain earlier that year.

This was a really cool climb. I did it with Mike and Zach. Almost entirely on scree. Interestingly though the scree was pretty solid for the most part. The worst part by far was the bushwhack through Pete Creek, particularly on the descent. The creek bed is rough and the brush is nasty in some spots. There were a lot of fascinating rocks and fossils and some cool waterfalls too. Bring mosquito repellent! Definitely not a class 3 as rated in Tom Lopez's book. Maybe a 2+ in some spots. This is my 3rd 12er.

It was a beautiful day in the Lost River Range neighborhood. Chatted up a couple of guys who had done Lost River Peak as we teamed up on the drive out to work the gates.

Memo to Margaret Fuller - that is not serious bush whacking.
Bush whacking scale 1-10. Barely a 1. Come on! Ever been to GNP?

Wow! My first sarcastic Climber's Log comment. I promise not to do it again.

Climbed the traditional route. Nice easy climb. I like it when the talus and scree are stable. This was my 9th 12er so I finally am done! I was happy to be able to do it with another climber that finished his 12ers and it was our birthday weekends. It doesn't get much better than that!

Mike, Curt and I did the first ascent of the North Face - Grand Chockstone Route as reported in the A.A.J. in 1983. We descended the northeast ridge (class 4) back to our camp at the base after a biv on the summit ridge.

I climbed Mount Breitenbach from Pete Creek. I underestimated how much water there would be in the canyon at the time. The waterfalls were slippery and I had to cross several unstable snow bridges higher on the mountain. Had perfect weather and enjoyed climbing the talus on this route. Now I understand why the mountain is easier to climb later in the season.

Kevin and I did a "winter" ascent on a wonderful day. Good snow conditions, cloudless sky, and only a mild breeze on the summit. We left the TH at 4:20am to maintain firm snow, and got back at about 12:40. Should have remembered the shorts!

Great weather, sunny, clear, no wind, smoke died down from August fires. Great class 2 route, I recommend it to anyone who visits this range.

Pretty uneventful hike up Pete Creek. Couldn't get my Subaru up to the trailhead (at least via Cedar Creek Rd.) so I had to do a bit of hiking across the sagebrush to the canyon. The climb is on firm rock. The upper reaches are in fact a pretty barren wasteland of rock. I would rate this as a Class 2 hike, in fact in the Sierra it would probably be class 1. I also did not find the summit ridge to be particularly exposed. It is certainly not a knife edge. The views from the top were great. Summit register entries date back to 1978.

Climbed via Pete Creek, it was a great day, perfect weather. There was still a fair amount of snow in the canyon, but the ridges were clear. First entry in the summit register since 8/05. While we were on the summit, a bighorn sheep ewe wandered to within 20 feet of us and hung out for a few minutes before strolling away. We saw here again later watching us from the southwest ridge while we were glissading down a few of the snow-banks near the top of the canyon. Here’s a write up and some photos.

Climbed this from Jones Creek. It was a long day on a great peak. Actually saw 4 other people that day scrambling around here. Pretty crowded for the Lost Rivers : )
