Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2015


Nice hike, I was a little demoralized when I saw the never ending talus towards the top, but it wasn't that bad once you hit the saddle. Great views of Borah, bell, diamond and east all the way to Big Southern butte. Great summit for a half days hike up the west ridge.

It was cold and a little snowy, but when we reached the summit the clouds parted and a stunning view came into site. Love this climb! Too cold to hit little Mac in the way back. Maybe next time!

MlaskySportier route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2013


Started off on the standard route but broke off and took a snow line to the east to obtain the face. Stayed toward the south of the standard route. Had a little snow to work with below the saddle. Quite loose. Recommend the standard route. Took it back down. Still a great climb with great views. Look out for tics at high camp...most we've seen in awhile.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2010


after a season of crummy snow conditions, finally good snow to crampon up. A little glissading on the way down. The views into Upper Cedar Creek and the surrounding peaks were excellent. With weather moving in, we made for a quick trip. The road to the trailhead is not great but also not as steep as I had expected.

Very cool peak. Climbed it on an awesome spring day, then had a fun glissade back down the west face. Here’s a write up and some photos.

SawtoothSeanRoute Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: December 18, 2005  Sucess!


No snowshoes nor cramp-ons needed on this day. It was clear and cold (-10 when we started). We went up Little Mac (11,071) first ,a steep ridge, then down to the prominent saddle between Little Mac and McCaleb. The scrambling was 50 /50 windblown snow / rock. Things went well and we did 5hrs and 20min car to car.

AndinistalocoRoute Climbed: south face Date Climbed: 2003


Was trying to solo a new line on the south face and had to back off a couple hundred feet from the summit. The climbing never got terribly technical - mid 5th class I'd guess - but the rock is absolute crap. In fact, I have old spaghetti sauce that's harder. Worse yet, there are almost no places for pro. My guess would be that this face stays unclimbed for a while.
