Lost River Limestone

I spent a few more days at the new crag with good friends and work partners Erik Leidecker and Drew Daly. Temperatures were just about perfect and even though we got a few drops of rain from the rumbling thundershowers, conditions were very climbable. The area is a challenge for photos due to all the trees and lack of vantage points, but here a few:

Erik warming up on "Little Dark Cloud" 5.9/10-

Gunning for the onsight of "Whisper Pine" 5.11, a great long and sustained route.

Erik flashing "Ataya" 5.11+

Another shot of "Ataya".

Seeking out the onsight of "Dirt Lotus" 5.10+/11-

I hope to have some more information about the area on here soon. To date there are 17 routes and 4 projects, with potential for another dozen or so. A big thanks goes out to the Elephants Perch in Ketchum and Ian Jameson for their donations of hardware!


  1. Looking good Marc, can't wait to come over and check out your hard work. Looks like a great place to beat the heat in the summer.

  2. Massachusetts Hiker Found On Mount Borah, Missing hiker to stoked on cedar creek to check out of mackay hotel!

    JB Unconfirmed information that I have is that he angled to the left (south) just above COR and ended up crossing the ridge over to an un-named point (Sacajawea). Eventually he made his way down Cedar Creek where he got his feet wet in a marshy area, causing problems.....

    Apparently he was close, within a mile of the trail-head, when they found him.....
