Thanks. I'd love to get out there again as well this summer. 4 or 5 others I would like to do. Was thinking about Aneroid Peak for a Spring one from looking at your trip info there. We'll see....

Yeah, we too have yet to nail Aneroid. Also thinking about Chief Joseph Mtn. as a good (day) hike. Would love to do Eagle Cap but that's a VERY solid overnighter (ideally would need 3 days).

Yeah, my ideal trip there this summer would be to Climb Twin Peaks and Sawtooth Peak one day at the Hurricane Creek trailhead on day one. Hike down and summit Sacajawea and camp somewhere coming back to the Creek (if one couldn't just descend the scree on the west side, not sure if that is viable or if there are cliffs). Then on day 3 hike to Eagle Cap. Day 4 summit the Cap and hike out. We'll see though. I have so many climbing/hiking "plans" already for this summer, I wonder which ones will really happen....

That's quite a work out you're proposing Brian!!!

sounds really cool.

Nicely done. The text and photos are informative. I would like to see more pictures of this big and colorful area, so you Oregon climbers get on it! The area reminds me of Colorado more than any other part of Oregon I've seen on SP yet.

I grew up about an hour from this area, and now live 4 hours north of the Wallowas. Until your page I had absolutely no appreciation of this region. Thank you!

Glad you enjoyed it. It's one of my favorite areas in Oregon.

I must say I really like that main Overview pic! I've always been a bit perplexed at its relatively low rating, but at least the important people like it. Thanks.

This was the page that led me to discover summitpost--had googled Sacajawea. Thank you, thank you, thank you'

Comments that I hope are helpful.
1. The areas under high angle limestone seemed to have a steady low frequency rain of generally small pieces of rock really whizzing down, with an occasional big thumper.

2. The limestone in the lower angle SE Ridge can go from solid to stuff you can step through in a single stride.

3. Per a climber I talked to, one of the rangers says there have been a few parties trying "big wall techniques" on the huge E face/wall, but have had problems with rockfall and friable zones.

4. A guess, but beautiful Thorp Creek Basin looks like it may be Oregon's biggest avalanche sump in winter and early spring.

5. Thorp Creek and the surrounding peaks may be Oregon's most spectacular alpine area.
