When on a quick hike with Augie and Tom today (1/6/Cool. It was wet, foggy and cold. No views at all. It snowed a bit too. But an enjoyable day peakbagging. Made it home by 2:30 pm so the wife was happy.

Here are pictures, GPS tracks and Google Map.

Travis,

I come to the defense of your newly acquired shameless peak-bagging addiction.  Just tell them how tough our ascent of Liebre was and you'll never be kidded about peak-bagging again.  

Seriously, it was a nice outing despite no views.  And Sawtooth was a nice little workout in both directions.

There are some, although I don't think any on this board, who view peak bagging negatively. Their views are that peak bagging is akin to conquering peaks and climbing them for the wrong reasons. But I agree that I think peak bagging has to be one of the healthiest obsessions out there, much better than my ones Smile I climb for all the right reasons, as do all of us.

Some folks just get their panties in a bunch over it. I don't see anything wrong with getting to know the lay of the land, and seeing as much as ya can.
