Fun but basically no trail at all  Sucess!

08/2020- Basically there is no trail to follow, GPS is your friend. lot of initial bush wacking. would recommend if you want a 3-4 hour challenge and are willing to push it. wear pants. add 2-3 hours for Vienna behind it, which has a mountain goat highway from abes to the Vienna summit. Both have registries

Great views and awesome ridgeline. Could not ask or a better hike to start the 2018 season for me

nice winter snowshoe  Sucess!

wasn't feeling so hot this day so I was glad to have folks breaking trail. Great views of the Sawtooths as well as the White Clouds across the valley

East Ridge Snowshoe  Sucess!

Snowshoed up the east ridge. Great views from the summit. A big treat to get up into the Sawtooths in winter. Here's a trip report and some photos.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up to Lake 8700 in Sawmill Gulch, then north up to the west ridge to the summit. Came down the direct south slope scree field in quick time. Ammo box at the top. Great views as the never-ending climbing season of 2008 continues into Dec! Ptly Cloudy and 30F. We needed snowshoes near Lake 8700 in the valley, but not on any of the slopes.

Route Climbed: South-Smiley Creek Date Climbed: July 27, 2005  Sucess!

I concur that this was more of a workout than anything else- probably the easiest and fastest Sawtooth Summit with great views- Sean Duffy

Route Climbed: Sawmill Canyon Date Climbed: July3rd/05  Sucess!

More of a good workout then a fine climb. But beautiful views as always and a good half day in the mountains!

Oh yeah. Found another frickin MONSTER tick on me afterward. Same area as before...I'm stearing clear of Smiley Creek for a while.
