The White Cloud Mountains are discussed on Pages 218-231 of the book.
The White Cloud Mountains are located southeast of Stanley in an oval-shaped range that is about 22 miles long and 20 miles wide. The range lies within the boundaries of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA).
In August 2015, a large portion of the White Clouds Mountains (and the Boulder Mountains) were finally designated as an official wilderness. Many thanks to all those who worked for years to make this happen.
The White Cloud Peaks offer many fine challenges, good access and, as a result, are somewhat crowded in the mid-Summer. Castle Peak is the highest summit, but dozens of other peaks are worthy of consideration. From Potaman Peak in the northeast corner of the range to D.O. Lee Peak in the central part of the range to Peak 10405 in the south and every ridge in between, you will find excellent climbing. Peak 11272 is on my favorite climb list and is one of the best climbs in the State of Idaho.
