Brad - Thanks for the book plug!
Dan - Lack of detail is where MP fails, and offers only bare-bones info that's generally lifted from Local guidebook authors, who put a lot of time, effort and money into their work. I don't support MP(REI)taking that info and profiting from others efforts without compensation. Thanks for supporting your local guidebook author! Sep 28, 2017

Dave, since you've published this area, why don't you add some useful beta? Aug 31, 2017
The intro copy for this area reads as if it were lifted directly from my book "Idaho Underground", except for editing that changed "glacial polished limestone" to "polished limestone". I would not describe the rock here as polished - in the way most folks think of polished limestone.

This is a great little area with mostly excellent rock in a unique mountain setting. Aug 28, 2017
