Combined Mount Mores and Shafer Butte. Aside from dropping my bags at home, this may have been the first thing I did upon arrival in Boise.
Nice Father’s Day hike with the family. Only 3 miles round trip from Pioneer Lodge via the Tempest trail. Trip Report
Short sweet hike on a beautiful day
Nice off-season hike on the slopes
And ended up with a brief little snow climb on the north slope. Still lots of snow back there in early May even though the south slopes were largely snow free.
The Super Dave spring snow report for this non-local was spot on.
Decided to head up after work. It was a nice evening ascent with quite a bit of snow left near the top and on the north side. My second time to the top.
Rode from Corrals up Hard Guy, along Ridge Road and up Mtn Bike trails across the face to the top. Fun stuff!
The first time I climbed Shafer Butte was by way of the new "Superior" run that we were working on for Bogus Basin. We worked as "coolies" during the summer to earn five bucks per day off a $55 dollar season pass. You were allowed to work 3 times during the summer for a total of $15 credit towards the purchase of your pass. The practice had to stopped when the minimum wage laws were passed.
Nice hike from Pioneer Lodge and Tempest Trail. Great views.
Quick hike up from upper parking lot. Map and pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/idaho_climbing/shafer_butte_201.htm
I've been to the top via chair lift about a billion times but finally decided to hike up it just for the heck of it.
Three of us joined ranks to hike up both Shaffer and Mores on a hot Idaho day. Splattski and deltaoperator and myself made up a dedicated trio although both of these guys had done these two peaks many times before and were kind enough to do them again for me. Both Steve and John were great and it would have been fun to have had Cornvallis along (Tom).
Very fun day with my Dad (Deltaoperator17)
Been there several times when I lived in Boise from 1999-2001. Nice escape from the city below.
I went up to climb Moore's Mountain and had time left over so I decided to go to the top of Shaffer Butte too. It was worth it and the view was great!
Hiked up with my Son, then down to the campground and up to Mores summit the next morning.
Hiked it with my Dad (Deltaoperator17) after a day of downhill mountain biking. Not much to look at going up but the views was very nice! Camped at the Mores Campground and hit the summit on Mores the nest morning.
