Our party of three arrived into central Idaho fairly late in the morning with thunderstorms threatening so we opted for this peak and its short ridge traverse from Twin Peaks lookout road. We made it out just before the storms overtook the mountain.
White Mountain was a really challenging climb from the North, especially when the upper part is still covered with snow. The rock is very unstable and unpredictable but the view from the top is worth it all.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
