Yes i was also thinking about it. Maybe we need to start throwing out ideas on peaks? Anyone have a peak in mind they want to hike.

Dan what days are good for you?

We should hike Mt Church hehe happy.gif

Unless work gets in the way, I'm in. Any peak is fine.

Date and Peak

No score for this post
March 26 2012, 7:17 PM 

Definitely on my mind... been discussing it with the committee.

The date that works best for me is May 12. This also is later in the year, so less worry about snow blocking access.

Peak thoughts:
1. Invisible (option for Sheepshead)
2. Wildhorse Lookout
3. Peak 10027 (Sawtooths, with option for McDonald)
4. Saddle

Thoughts on those choices?

spring outing peaks

Those choices look tasty enough. Loving the spring skiing (if it lasts that long), I would choose 10027 of those. Maybe Big Black Dome would be more of a full meal in the Wildhorse lookout area. It would probably still accommodate skiers and is likely to be a straightforward hike for hikers at that time. That is unless this April/May is like the past couple of years, in which case it will be winter conditions. Cache Peak approached from the Castle Rock State Park trails also looks like an interesting hike, though I would doubt much snow will left there on May 12. Shelly/Lime etc is also of interest to me and those may have good skiing then.

Your peak suggestions...

Your peak suggestions are great. However, I have done Big Black Dome and Shelley and I don't repeat non-Boise area peaks (I know, selfish!).

I vote for Saddle but I'd be happy with any of those choices. Not sure about Wildhorse Lookout though. I'm actually not sure where that is? Pioneers I assume.

Times and TRs

From my experience, Invisible and Saddle are similar in times (7 hours). They took less time than our group climb of Al West (9+ hours). (although seasons and conditions vary...)
Here are TRs or SP pages for each of Dan's suggestions

Peak 10027

The Wildhorse looks like a great group hike! 5K gain on the others is a big day for a large group!

10027 is not a 5k gain, it is 3k.

There is a route on Saddle that is only 7 miles and 4000' of gain.

I will give you that Invisible might be a bit much for a group hike.

Peak 10027 is only 3k. Remember that our trip started from the highway, adding 2 or 3 mile search way. And according to SawtoothSean there is a trail part of the way up the basin:

Dan, I'll have to check with my wife (and son's mother) since Sunday is Mother's Day. Any other weekends available? It would be nice to make this a multi-day outing...
