Located in the center of Sequoia National Park, the Kaweah Mountains are a rugged ridge that heads south from the Great Western Divide. This was a 6 day trip to base camp at the Big Arroyo river from which we did two climbs. One climb was up Mount Kaweah (13,802') and over to Second Kaweah (13680'). The second was a difficult class 3 up Black Kaweah (13680'). On the way out I climbed both Empire Mountain (11,550') and Sawtooth Peak (12,343').

It was time to return to the Sawtooth Mountains and climb Decker Peak, its third tallest peak at an elevation of 10,704 feet. I took an extra day off of work and got a five day weekend after the Fourth of July and backpacked 25 miles through the Sawtooths from Grandjean to Redfish Lake. A good paced trip with enough time to take a day to summit Decker Peak and stay two nights at Upper Cramer Lakes.

The Seven Devils are a group of rugged mountain peaks located between the Snake River and the Rapid River. The peaks top out at an elevation of 9,400 feet and drop steeply into Hells Canyon to an elevation around 1200 feet. In this trip to the Seven Devils we spent seven days and climbed seven devils, a goblin and an ogre.

Chamberlain Basin was the heart of the portion of the Frank Church Wilderness Jason and I backpacked across. Our ten day, 100+ mile adventure took us from the South Fork of the Salmon River up and over into Chamberlain Basin. From there we worked our way to Big Creek, which we followed to the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. From the Middle Fork we worked our way into the Big Horn Crags at met up with horses, fresh food and resupplies at Barking Fox Lake.
Thompson Peak is the highest peak in the Sawtooth Mountains and as such its summit was a prime target for adventure. Located in the northern reaches of the Sawtooths, the summit tops out at an elevation of 10,751 feet. Thompson Peak is accessible from the north via Goat Creek. You can reach Goat Creek from the Iron Creek trail head just outside of Stanley.
