Tim has provided the article on Idaho summit steepness. He does a bit of backpacking and technical climbing but enjoys peak ascents the most, having been up over 1500 summits throughout the Rocky Mountain states. Residing in Ft Collins, CO, most of his activity is in Wyoming and Colorado, although he sees Idaho’s mountains as very intriguing and hopes to make more visits in the coming years.
Victor is an east coast city slicker who never the less cannot rid himself of the itch for mountains in the Great American West. His original fascination with Colorado 14ers and state highpoints soon faded when during his three years living in Utah he discovered the wonders of the Northern American Rockies in the states of Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, and it is these special places that he counts as his favorites spots that he hopes to return again and again for fairweather peakbagging. His main focus consists of prominence peaks, range highpoints, and area highpoints. A Massachusetts sports nut at heart who used to spend hours perusing books such as Idaho: A Climbing Guide on his commute to and from Boston, he is currently coping with a quarterlife crisis having turned his efforts towards bagging as many bars and happy hours in the Manhattan and New Jersey, yet still holding close to his heart many a treasured Idaho memory spent in his all too small sample of the Gem State’s peaks, including and especially those of Castle Peak, Thompson Peak, Lem Peak, Council Mountain, the Titus Traverse, Two Point Mountain, Buffalo Hump, and Grave Peak, Pinyon Peak among others.
