Route Skied: ne RIDGE  Sucess!

Super nice ski - great views! Too bad about fire, wondering when that happened. How did it start?

Grape Creek Fire

While I didn't get a chance to summit, I was all over this mountain for a couple of weeks during the Grape Creek Fire. Perhaps, I will come back to finish off the summit before fire season is over... or the next time I climb at the city.

First snow of the season  Sucess!

Hiked up during a snowstorm. Didn't get to enjoy the views, but still a fun hike. City of Rocks was awesome.

Up through the lakes basin, great weather minimal snow. Did this one after working a full day, then driving all night down from Tri-Cities.

Two-fer Day  Sucess!

Done as a two-fer with Independance via the southwest route. Beautiful day, but a little windy on top. Dog friendly.

Cache Peak  Sucess!

We hiked in from the Independence Lakes trailhead and up to the peak. Loved the lakes and the views of City of rocks was great.

My first Solo on southwest route  Sucess!

Very fun climb. I was a little timid to go by myself, but everything worked out okay. My best advice is that if you are going to do the Southwest ridge, go in the middle of the summer when the dirt roads are dry. There were several places where I almost got stuck. I decided not to get Independence.......time was a concern, but I will be back.

good way to spend a couple of hours. Climbed it from the west. Good views of City of Rocks

Morning hike  Sucess!

Very nice but mosquito infested walk up. Got up and down just ahead of the thunderclouds. Great views of City of Rocks from the top. Dan's right: you should grab Independence while you're this close. Of course I didn't.

Prominence  Sucess!

Western Ridge  Sucess!

This is another nice hike to an Idaho County Highpoint. A long drive to the TH for the western ridge.

West Ridge  Sucess!

I started from the Independence Lakes trailhead. Nice trail that was also popular with cows. The lakes are in a very scenic canyon. I climbed up to the saddle between Cache and Independence and then followed the ridge to the summit.
