This thread was running off-topic on the Perfect Peak thread (there is a little more preceding this there, so go visit that, too). So here's the last post from Super Dave. And I think it's a great discussion that is worthy of its own thread. Please add to it as you see fit.

To me, solid rock, some exposure, and a long scramble section are all required. Also, if I’m focusing enough on figuring out route-finding that I don’t notice being tired and winded, then that’s a good thing too.

A couple of us were discussing the “top 10 Idaho scrambles” yesterday after doing Tower of Babel in the 7 Devils. No consensus on the order of ranking, but here are peaks we felt worth considering.:

Regan
Castle
Big Basin Peak (EF Wood River approach)
Old Hyndman
Brocky
11272 (White Clouds)
Tower of Babel
Diamond
Idaho
Goat Mtn (Pios)
The Fin
DBE
WCP-10
Snowyside
Ivory Peak
McGown
Baron
Sacajawea

So which ones are we missing?
