I climbed this route with summitpost members Dean and rfbolton who I met in the trail head parking lot. Good climb,with a really long aproach that felt like it wasint going to end. Great scenery and great company. This was my third attempt and I finnaly made it. Well worth the effort.

Great summer day for summiting Hyndman Peak! Wildflowers were everywhere from the start of the trail and only got better the higher I went. A few storms moved in around 2 PM but one of the better hikes in Idaho!

Route Climbed: East,ridge from saddle between Hyndman and Cobb Date Climbed: July 2002  Sucess!

One of the most beautiful approaches anywhere, great views in all directions. Late spring trips are the best while the wild flowers are in bloom. Been there three times and plan on going back. Boots with good ankle support advisable, lots of loose rock once you go for the summit.

Route Climbed: Standard Route Date Climbed: August/03  Sucess!

A beautiful mountain in an outstanding region! I recommend shortening your day greatly by bicycling the first few miles, it sure makes coming down a lot more enjoyable. And once above 11,000 in the boulder hopping of the east ridge, look for the rare Mountain Sorrel plant. Its difficult to find but its leaves taste just like apple, its amazing.

Turned back because of bad weather very near summit (heart breakingly close). It was a good trip anyway.

Route Climbed: Standard/Chute Route Date Climbed: December, 7th 2002  Sucess!

Great views of Sun Valley, and the Lost River Range. Great mix of climbing variety. Hope to ascend again with snowshoes, more snow, and my skis. Summer ascent would be a great hike/scramble with plenty of great scenery (lakes, other mountains, & wildlife)

Route Climbed: Southeast ridge Date Climbed: 9/2/2001  Sucess!

Excellent day for climbing - sunny, mild, and few others on the trail. Reached the summit around noon and noticed a group of climbers on the summit of Old Hyndman. Ate a nice lunch and completed the trip in about 8.5 hours. I believe I was the only one to summit that day. Awesome climb!
