I first visited the Sawtooth Range in 1968 and it was love at first sight. Over the years I have done 4 crossings, 2 north-to-south by way of the Queens and Boise River and 2 west-to-east along with a couple of crossings on skis. This was also the range where we learned, practiced and honed our mountaineering and technical rock climbing skills. I am not done yet.
I like to use the Sawtooths as a spring "tune up" because with low elevations and easy approaches, they melt out before other ranges and offer a good mix of all kinds of mountain challenges I will see the rest of summer. Want to go in winter sometime. Great range. I've been up 10 peaks so far, a couple without names.
