Poor Road, Good trail, Solid Rock- great climb!
Cold night out Near the summit
A tough hike and climb. The area beyond the left fork of wildhorse creek is de facto wilderness due to the complete absence of trail maintenance. I made it to the saddle between Howard and summit 2 (about 100 feet from the top) and then descended due to dehydration (ran out of water). I will be back-- it is a true wilderness experience.
This so far was my most rewarding climb.
The road is ridiculous...I personally recommend biking in.
I didnt know there was a trail until the last half hour of my hike and it certinaly would've made things easier. The views are the best in Idaho.
It is truly and awesome adventure.
