I drove up from the west side up Big Canyon until the road was blocked by snow at about 6400ft. Very windy day. Still some snow but I only put on snowshoes for about a quarter mile.
Nicely wooded in Big Canyon. Great views from Cache peak, to Box Elder and the Wellsville cone, and up to Diamond and Borah on a clear day like I had. Nice to see Diamond after coming from there the day before.
Hot day but the view is cool
From the West Ridge. Second Idaho County highpoint of the day. Did this one after Cache Peak.
Climbed west ridge. The register only had two signatures both from Arizona in June of this year. The area is surprisingly beautiful and thickly wooded. Excellent view from the top. I would definitely do this one again.
Accessed from the east (with landowner permission) and climbed the ridge line with Randy and Brian. The summit was super windy but most of the way up we were protected from the wind. Skied the center bowl on the east face. Awesome turns. It took us 6 hours and 50 minutes car to car. Most of the snow was melted down low on the way out so we carried skis for awhile. What a great day.
Climbed with a couple friends on a windy but sunny day. Didn't see another soul until we were down, was odd for 4th of July Holiday but nice. Parked at the intersection of Bull Creek and Knox Canyon and Big Canyon road and bushwhacked up and down to the west ridge and proceeded to the summit. Came back down one ridgeline to the North and ended up much lower and hiked about 1.5 miles back up the switchbacks on Knox Canyon Road.
Hiked up Deep Creek Peak via the west ridge. This is a nice area and mountain. A quiet place to be on 4th of July weekend.
Was significantly colder and windier at the top than on the road, surprisingly so. A front was coming in. Hunting season...everyone was in red, even the dog. Many shots were heard. I forget about things like hunting season.
I had to drive from SLC to Mountain Home to pick up some equipment for work, and this mtn happened to offer a good rest spot along the way. Nice climb punctuated by hundreds of ladybugs on the summit.
This is a nice hike up the western ridge.
Moogie737 and I started at about 8:27 PM to kick off an Idaho county 24 hour sprint. We topped out sometime before it was totally dark- we could still read the summit register while sitting on the east side of the mountain (it was WINDY and COLD up there!). Memorable decent in the darkness.
Reached summit several times during hunting season's.
Climbed it with bdog.
Usually do this a few times every year. I really enjoy this peak and it is close to home. The East Ridge is a very scenic walk in the winter/early spring.
See Dean's trip report. Nice hike, nice views. Great company!
Fun peak. Camped nearby and ascended first thing in the morning.
I was a youngin', but I had to climb my county's high point. I was 13. Convinced my Dad and 2 of my older brothers to tag along.
After climbing Cache Peak in the morning, Bob Bolton and I headed to Power County to check out Deep Creek Peak. Dodging thunderstorms, we waited until a clearing in the late afternoon to ascend this peak, getting back to our vehicle just at dark. The peak is a beauty, not in its difficulty but in the nice viewpoint it provides you with, a 360 degree view of Idaho.
A register was found and signed into on the summit and from some of the entries, it was obvious that this peak could be ascended from the east and southeast from neighboring ranches. One entry mentioned that he had ridden a motorcycle to the top from the south east.
