Tom Cox is another next generation climber. He gets out often and his blog, The Granola Chronicles, is well worth reviewing. Tom notes, “I’ve found climbing the mountains of Idaho and beyond to be a humbling, challenging and rewarding experience. It’s an adventure just waiting to happen.”
Tom writes great, well-photographed trip reports. You will find links to his reports on many Central Idaho peak pages on this site. He has also contributed an article on the shortcut to Chamberlain Basin which will save you a lot of hiking miles if you are going to climb Castle Peak from the south. Check out The Chamberlain Basin Cross-Country Route article. There is also a link to Tom’s detailed trip report for Castle Peak on the peak’s page. It’s a must read.
