Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 159-160 of the book.


Mount Regan is perhaps the most photographed of all Sawtooth peaks. Its Northwest Face has graced dozens of calendars and book covers. It is a peak that is highly visible from many other Sawtooth peaks. Below you will find a few photos showing the Southeast Ridge Route and a lot of shots of the peak from different vantage points.
