Ryan Peak

Great conditions after the rain on Tuesday. From West Pass continued up to the col before Ryan Peak vs. taking the sharp ridge from West Pass. Came down the sharp ridge and I would suggest going up to the north of the ridge vs. the very lose scree field on the ridge proper.

Smoky day  Sucess!

My dogs and I made it car to summit in 3 hours, but we travel faster than most. The smoke unfortunately limited the visibility to a few miles or so. I'll be back for the neighboring 11ers and hopefully will get to see the views then.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Nice climb on a beautiful fall day. Th standard south ridge route from West Pass had some loose rock, but not as bad as I'd expected. Fantastic views from the summit. Trip Report

Goats!  Sucess!

Saw 4 goats on the way up. Took a slightly different approach and avoided the scree slog on the way up, then had fun scree skiing down on the West facing slope.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

I logged my summits on a spreadsheet but a few I never logged the date. I have "summer 2001" down for this, so admittedly have guessed the rest. Started out sunny, but clouded over as we neared the saddle. It didn't look threatening so we continued on. Climbed with a girlfriend from Hailey.

Nice  Sucess!

Was more intrigued by rock towers on surrounding ridges, but good high peak.

Route Climbed: South Ridge  Sucess!

Great hike except for hiking up the scree section (2 steps up, slide 1 down). Amazing views from the summit, unfortunately I had the worst case of altitude sickness I've ever had and wasn't too happy at the time. After dropping a couple hundred feet, I felt better and had a really fun time jumping down the scree.

West Pass: July of 2004  Sucess!

Made the climb with my wife and our dog. Beautiful day. Long, but scenic approach. Good view of Boulders.

Route Climbed: south ridge Date Climbed: August 22 2005  Sucess!

This is an interesting mountain to climb. The approach is long and steep and you do not get a view of the summit for almost the entire climb. The views, especially once you reach West Pass, are stunning. You see steep faces (Kent), sweeping views (West Pass), distant peaks (Glassford) in virtually every direction you look. The drawback to any climb in the Boulders is, of course, the looseness of the rock. Scrambling on this scree is unpleasant. Descending, on the other hand, can be a blast.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: August 4, 2001  Sucess!

Very nice hike to West Pass. From the pass it is a scree slog to the south ridge, but then a fun scramble from there.
