Many climbers have contributed information included on this website. The book and the website would not have been possible without the contributions of many people. My thanks to the contributors identified on this and the following pages. This website can only be a success with the on going contribution of Idaho Mountaineers.

Please feel free to help us expand our knowledge of Idaho’s mountain and climbing routes by contributing to this endeavor. If you would like to contribute, please email me or use the submit a book update link.
