Chillin' on Sheepshead - Mission Mountains 10/2/12


Male, 39 years old

Missoula, Montana, United States

Power = 8 (Vote Weight = 1%)

Favorite climbs: McDonald Peak - Mission Mountains, Sphinx Mountain - Madison Range, Ear Mountain - Rocky Mountain Front, too many others to list!

Current goals: Since one of my dogs is getting older and gets pretty sore hips nowadays I have decided to take on some of the easier hikes and climbs in the area. This has led me to basically want to summit ALL of the named peaks (and some unnamed ones, too) with at least 300 feet of prominence and within a reasonable distance of about 2 hours from Missoula. There is no master list, and I will never climb them all, but I have climbed a large number of them, and the smaller peaks do make for great winter trips. On many of these peaks you also get the feeling that you are probably the only one to bother going there, except maybe the occasional hunter or forest technician or illegal snowmobiler. Hey, all high points have merit, I believe. So if you happen to be looking for more information on any of the "smaller" peaks around here feel free to message me- chances are high that I have made it up there at some point, or plan to. Its fun to figure out the routes on your own though, as well.

Favorite new haunt: The Utah Desert! Mainly the San Rafael Swell, Robbers Roost area, and the Henry Mountains. I'm the new guy in canyon country, but I have fallen in love with this gorgeous and rugged landscape! After a couple of trips now, I am excited to leave the dogs at home next time and find some human partners to do some more challenging canyoneering adventures!

Major peaks around here that I have my eyes on for 2015: Snowshoe Peak- Cabinets; Glacier Peak- Missions; Union Peak, Buck Peak- Swans; Scapegoat Mountain; Blodgett Mtn., Heavenly Twins, Como Peaks- Bitterroots; East Warren- Pintlers

About me: Originally from Minnesota, I moved out to Missoula in '98, but I didn't really get into summit hiking until about 2008. I like to hike with my dogs most of the time and therefore usually keep things pretty non-technical. I'm no fitness freak, but I really enjoy spending time in the wilderness and get out as often as possible, and that is quite often.

A Few Words: I am a "Summit Hiker" not a "Peak Bagger". Peaks don't fit in bags.
