Shirttail Peak is closed to all activities, including rock climbing, due to Golden Eagles nesting in the area. Trespassing constitutes a federal offense and violators will be cited. Eagles are sensitive to disturbance caused by human presence and may abandon their nest and young as a result.
This is a fun, moderate crack that is worth doing if you are in the area, but it is not worth the hike as a destination climb. The protection is good throughout and the climbing is interesting on the steep and well-featured wall.
This is on the far left side of the buttress located below and to the southwest of the Potato Chip. Idaho Express climbs the obvious crack system to the left of Poor Man's Wendego. Rap from a tree with slings at the top.
