Shortly after getting our hands on Alan Kearney's book, Shirley & I decided we needed to climb this beautiful horn of rock. We got around to it during the Labor Day Weekend of 2003. This was our first outing to the beautiful Sawtooths of Idaho. Hiked in on day 1, climbed on day 2, and out on day 3. Beautiful area, gorgeous mountain and a pretty good route.
