South Ridge  Sucess!

Nice summit. Part of a 2 day loop around the Pintler Peaks. I've never seen so much beargrass as I did on this trip.

North ridge  Sucess!

2nd time to the summit. Camped at upper Oreamnos Lake and also climbed East Pintler Peak. Previously climbed the west face after camping at Hidden Lake.

Re: first storm

Gotta love Hidden Lake! Great spot to catch dinner.

Geographic bonus peak!!  Sucess!

West Pintler has the distinction of being a 'triple-divide.' The peak sheds water west into the Bitterroot, east into the Big Hole and north into the Rock Creek drainages! My summit bid began on the east fork of the Bitterroot. Beautiful hike through a mostly burned landscape. (Date climbed is approx.)

first storm  Sucess!

nice solo with the dog for a few days. Was greeted with the first snow of the season. I did the west face, scrambling from Hidden lake and descended the south ridge back to the lake. Nasty talus!
