George Reinier

George and his friend John Roache were the first climbers to climb all of Idaho’s 11,000+ foot peaks. George reports that back in June of 2006 he crawled off his couch to climb Lost River Peak with Dave Pahlas (his co-worker), John Roache (long time friend) and Pat McGrane (John’s co-worker). During the climb he got bit by the climbing bug somewhere between the snow climb up and the glissade down the Super Gully. Afterwards he set a goal to climb all the Idaho 12ers, which he completed 6 weeks later. That September George and John attended their first Idaho Summits outing and unknowingly began their 11er journey on Hidden and Wet Peaks in the Lost River Range. They completed the Idaho 11ers 6 years later
