aaronjamesSpring Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2017


Really nice training hike close to the boise area. South east ridge is a long hike at around 11 miles but the moderate grade makes it quite doable in a half day.

Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2007


Hiked this with Jon Oh, Ben (Jon's friend), and three other guys that Jon and/or Ben knew. It was a fairly hard hike, but made especially harder because I went on an empty stomach and didn't bring any food! Also, as we were climbing one of the snow-covered faces, I was slipping and sliding everywhere, because I wore tennis shoes :(

Not much snow on the ground so Doug and I decided to try the south ridge. all the false summits were annoying, but they made the actual summit that much better. we brought up the pack stove, made some green tea, and reheated some home made spaghetti. It is a great hike that's close to boise.

Lots of up and down to get to the summit. Hiked up from Irish Creek with a few friends on a rainy, foggy day. Quite a few hunters in the area.

Just two of us training for the DeathHike. Nice view from the summit. This is a humbling early season hike.

It was almost too hot to be up there. I was surprised at how steep opening section was and the hike its self turned out to be harder than I thought it would be. This is a very fun local hike!

Date Climbed: May 9, 2009


Camp up from Irish Creek. This was quite a work out on my legs especially since this is my first real outing of the season. The legs are still buring now and I'm gonna feel it tomorrow. My legs aren't all that was burned though...I forgot sunscreen.....yeah. Anyways the view of the Boise mountains was great and so was the wildlife. I saw at least 5 elk.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2009


Tried to follow a very fast goat (Sawtoothsean). It is not everyday out in the Boise Mountains, especially on this peak that 2 separate parties 5 people between them all summit this semi-remote peak.

Brutal off trail bushwack with Sean!

Nick and I climbed the south ridge on a warm June day. I’ve never been so frustrated by false summits. Still a good outing with 20+ different types of wildflowers seen along the way, and great views. Nice to finally get the “grand slam” finished off. Here’s a trip-report and some photos.

The start of the south route is very steep and since I usually do it in the spring when I am coming out of hibernation, it is a lung burner. Very neat peak and a excellent workout.

Steep scramble through deep snow. Fell through a frozen creek and almost became hypothermic. Ironic considering this peak is 5 miles from my house and I've been on many other peaks like Rainer, McKinley, Garnd Teton etc. with no problems.
