Route Climbed: SE ridge Date Climbed: Sept 3, 1997  Sucess!

Fun scramble up through a spectacular gulley just SE of summit. There's a spectacular vertical block that sticks up on the ridge nearby. It's clearly visible from ID-75 just north of the Redfisfh Lake turn-off. There could be rock climbing potential on this nearby gendarme.

My brother and I climbed up the east rib, saw a mountain goat on the way. The weather was great and the views were gorgeous.

Route Climbed: East Rib Date Climbed: July 23, 2005  Sucess!

I have wanted to climb McGown Peak ever since my first trip to the Sawtooth Mountains. The approach went past many lakes and a large waterfall and was very beautiful. The last climb up the east rib was the hardest part. It involved climbing up a steep ridge full of loose pebble sized scree. We had a sunny day with blue sky and an amazing view from the top. It was a great climb.
