First Peak of First Solo Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009
With information from a number of IdahoSummits climbing log signatories, I attempted this peak and Hidden Peak as my first ever solo outing. Was a big goal for me. It all went well except the GPS kinda went weird down low in the trees on the return. Learned to always bring a map and bear spray if you are in an area where any feature is named "Bear" thus and such.
Climbed Octoberfest as the first of four peaks bagged during the IdahoSummits fall outing. On the way up we got to watch 3 bull elk cross the 10000’ basin to the southwest. We later followed Wet Creek back to the trailhead where we had great views of the gnarly north side of the peak. Trip Report
