North Raker (Red Finger)

View from the south. Burried deep in the Sawtooth mountians of Idaho, this peak sees very few summits. The only route up is class 6.

Nice shots you've posted of the Rakers (Red Finger). I'm planning a scramble on South and aid climb on the North- if I can find someone able to make the approach with the proper aid skills. Have you summitted either, and do you have any interest?

Re: Impressive

I took this picture as I was making my way to the saddle between the peaks. I managed to summit the South Raker and only got as close as standing next to Red Finger. It really looks like it would be a nasty climb. From the base it looks like you could get part way up with a few class 5 moves before aid is needed. I've never done any aid climbing so I'm not sure how difficult it would really be. Very enjoyable area to be in though, and I would recommend going. Good Luck!

Re: wow....

Thank you. It took quite a bit of effort to get this shot, but it was well worth it.

Howling Wolf

It looks like a wolf's head howling at the moon. Great shot!

Re: Howling Wolf

Thanks man! I've never seen that all the times I've looked at this picture, but you're right!
