“Two Gun” Robert Limbert is probably the most interesting personality associated with Idaho Climbing history. You can read about his climbing related accomplishments on pages 15 to 16 of Idaho A Climbing Guide.

His accomplishments and interests extended far beyond mountaineering. Robert developed Redfish Lodge and he is credited as the moving force behind the establishment of Craters of the Moon National Monument. In fact, the visitors center at the monument is named after him.

A newspaper article about Robert Limbert.

This article was undated when I found it but more than likely is from late 1920.
