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.

North Ridge, Class 5.2
See Greg Parker’s trip report for the details.
Southeast Ridge Route, Class 3-4
This is the first ascent route, completed by the Underhills and Dave Williams. The following photos document the route.
The approach crosses a lot of broken rock. The climber is approaching a gully that leads to the top of the ridge.
The ascent to the top of the peak’s Southeast Ridge crosses a steep, talus-littered slope.
The talus slope eventually leads to the ridge top.
Once on the top of the ridge, the climbing is steep but presents no significant obstacles until you reach the summit block.
Once on top of the ridge, the route is straightforward to the summit block. This photo shows the East Face of the summit block.
