SummitSlayersAwesome ridgeline!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2013

SummitSlayers

Climbed up to twin lakes from pettit lake. Made base camp right in between the two lakes. Twin lakes has great swimming hole and campsites. From the pass made our way up the face aiming for a red band of rock that led to the ridge line. Once on the ridge the fun scrambling begins. made it to the summit early so we were able to spend over an hour up top counting the endless number of lakes, and soaking up the breathtaking views of the sawtooths!

Climbed from the pass on day two of the backpacking loop. Mostly good rock with some good exposure and a few tricky scrambles. Amazing views!

From the pass on the trail, we dropped our packs and made it to the summit in exactly an hour. Nice climb, with pretty solid rock.

The view from the top was terrific, we counted 31 lakes but probably missed some. All in all, a fun climb, maybe a few class 3 sections but thats about it.

Sawtooth Scott

My first Class 3 scramble with my high school buddy Brian. After we negotiated a fair amount of snow on route to the Twin-Tox pass we made our way over to the SE side for the summit. Met a writer from Ketchum doing a story on the route. A fine day coupled with an unfortunate sunburn.

Several false summits and a rotten trail half packed with loose snow made it a chore, but the views were inspiring and praise-worthy.

JimRuppToxaway Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2012
Climbed it during a weekend hike around the Alice-Twin-Toxaway loop. A group of three took off from the new saddle between Twin and Toxaway. Walked up the NE spur, then cut across the face to the SE ridge. On the ascent, we were too low and missed the trail heading up. We attained the ridge at the base of the treeline, then threaded up to the false summits. Had a good hour at the top. On the way down, we took the steeper, but easier, trail back to the saddle.

Great peak in a great area. Climbed the southwest ridge during an excellent backpacking trip. A goat trail goes about two-thirds of the way up from the saddle, the last sections was some fun scrambling. Summit views were great in all directions. Trip Report

Dropped backpack at saddle on the way into Flycreek drainage and scrambled the ridgeline to the summit. Sketchy near the top with arguably class 4 moves. Stiff penalty for slipping up; you would not want to lose your footing here. Fortunately the loose talus is interspersed with small outcrops that give you firm footing to catch your breath.

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2002
I climbed this peak several years ago. The view was great! We didn't get to spend much time at the summit because other members of our group were too tired and wanted to continue on to Toxaway. I plan on going back to this area sometime later this year.

What a great hike. We left from Toxaway in the morning, dropped our packs at the pass, and summited thereafter. The scouts were running on all cylinders. Fun peak for a big group!

Wonderful area. Packed into Alice lake and camped. Did the climb from there in one day. Completed the Toxaway lake loop the next. Wonderful area and a great view down the Boise, Payette and Salmon Rivers.

Saw two goats right under the summit.

Nice long dayhike from the campground at Petit Lake. Gorgeous views from the summit. I can hardly wait to go back and climb Mt Cramer.

We camped at Pettit Lake and hit the trail early in the a.m. to avoid as much heat as we could. Dennis and I went up via Alice Lake to the pass between Toxaway and Twin Lakes and then went up from there. The summit view is absolutely spectacular, one of the best I've enjoyed in any mountain range and we completed a long day (18 miles) by having some corn on the cob and a great dinner at the campsite, provided by Dennis's wife who had to deal with the myriads of flies and mosquitos during the day while we were off playing on the mountain. Dennis and I will return to do Cramer at a later time as the Sawtooth range is incredible.

Julie and I summited on a beautiful Sawtooth day. Cloudless, windless. It was the first time I'd been up there in over 30 years.

I climbed Snowyside Peak during a three day backpacking trip. The weather was perfect but there were forest fires in the Salmon River Mountains and the peaks above Sun Valley. Hiked to Twin Lakes and then went up to Toxaway Pass. I climbed up the mountain from there. The view of all of the mountains and lakes is incredible. It is a very beautiful area.

Part of great backpacking trip from Toxaway Lake to the pass. Great scramble but too many bugs on top to stay long. Awesome views of the lakes and mountains.

Climbed with 3 other LHBC counselors. Hiked in from Alpine Way TH at the end of the Alturas Lake Rd. Lots of lakes and wildflowers on the approach. The summit view is phenomenal: endless lakes and mountains.
