Great!  Sucess!

Got a little worried when we saw people turning back from Chicken Out Ridge, but it turned out to be nothing we couldn't handle. Amazing views from the summit!

Chicken Out Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed COR with fellow CMCer, Jamie Norris. The trail on the summit ridge was covered with steep snow, so we ascended the final 800ft on the ridgeline. It was easy climbing but very exposed. We were rewarded with a Bluebird day. There was not a cloud in the sky! It took us 13 1/2 hours RT. This is my 37th state HP.

Can't Climb it enough  Sucess!

Climbed it before, and will climb it many more times! It's good to have a good climb like this just 3.5 hours from Boise. It can offer some nice hard routes or some simple family ones.

Collins North Face challenge  Sucess!

A Regular  Sucess!

Re: A Regular

Summited also on 9/3/2010 in celebration of my "big" birthday. I may retire this one. My knees are telling me to consider new peaks over repeats.

Climbed with buddy Dick... great day... bad knees on the way down!

Borah and Lewis & Clark's Idaho  Sucess!

Had a fun trip up, enjoyed scrambling along the ridge up. After, checked out where Lewis & Clark crossed the Bitterroots, and the source of the Missouri.

Great day  Sucess!

Great weather for the climb. Kudos to S&R out of MacKay, helping that poor gentleman who thought it was a good idea to climb with a colostomy bag, over-nighted with no gear.

Steep, but awesome  Sucess!

One of my most favorite climbs of all time. The first section up to COR was quite steep, although the worst part was the relentless mosquitos. COR was quite fun. The rock was nice and solid. I really enjoyed this peak. The weather was beautiful. I would love to come back and climb Leatherman Peak

Crampy crampy

Cramped up terribly 1/3 way up COR. This was my first peak attempt.....nice one to pick. I'll be back to tackle this one.

My first 12er  Sucess!

Climbed this one weekend with a good friend up the normal trail. Not sure on the exact date as I didn't have good records at the time. It was a great time, but as it was 10 years ago don't recall much except the fact we took a wrong turn on Chicken Out and got to see some rocks go over.

started at noon  Sucess!

so we basically had the mountain to ourselves. a great day!

Again  Sucess!

I have no idea how I ended up here again. I have one more 12er left.

I took my brother's family up by request. Enjoyed it quite a bit, though.

chilly  Sucess!

This was one of those days where it alternates between quite nice (in the lee of the wind) to very chilly and "am I going to get blown off this thing?"

Summit  Sucess!

Up in 5 hours on first attempt. Excellent mountain!

Standard route  Sucess!

Awesome Climb, the pics on the net don't do it justice. My friend really wanted to go and my wife and I were reluctant. His enthusiasm was not containable and so we went and we were so pleasantly surprised! What an amazingly fun hike and truly beautiful. Do this hike, you'll remember it forever.

Via Chicken Out  Sucess!

Camped at the trailhead the night before. Up at 5:15 am, on the trail by 6:20 am. On the peak at 9:50 am. Hung out on top for about an hour eating and taking in the views. Down by 2 pm.

First state high point  Sucess!

Besides some post holing on approach, a quick decent down a steep face because of lightning, losing trekking poles and wands, and my Sunto watch taking a turn for the worse. Had a fantastic climb!

Didn't Chicken Out  Sucess!

Fun to get a peak away from my normal home ranges. Second State high point. Definitely steep, descent was a knee buster, but we took it really quickly.
