Sharon was feeling a bit smug after successfully crossing Chicken Out Ridge twice in the same day and tagging the summit of Idaho's big one. This was Sharon's first climbing experience of her life so neither of us knew how she'd do but on the way down she was already taking about the "next time". It was my 25th trip to the summit.
The "tan band", Chicken Out Ridge, the notch or saddle (w/patch of snow), and the traverse below the false summit can be seen in this picture. Click here
