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.
Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: August 30, 2003
Climbed as my fifth peak of the nine summits of Idaho record. It was hot and the false summit threw me off a little. Was finally able to make it after 2 other attempts via different routes that failed for lack of time.
Great climb! Made the traverse to Lost River after this to avoid bushwhacking back out.
