Hideout Ridge and the CDT
Looked like the weather on top of the pass would be getting tough soon, with one more nice weekend in the cards and the brotherman hanging out in Butte, we headed out to some of the higher elevation areas...
Sometimes there's a loose flake or two on the new ones...careful out there...
Laughing up WSOW (World Series of Wide)
After a quick warm up on a new one, the plan was to check out the Taxman look-alike...which turned out to be a bit harder than we remembered...so we took a 'quick' exploring tour that ended up going on for about 4 hours. The ridge has an incredible amount of potential, and some really wild looking lines...we became very overwhelmed by the whole hike...so many good looking lines, then another handful of pins and fins just a few minutes farther.(repeat) I have no doubt that this area will be seeing much more action in the coming seasons...
Looking back at the Hideout (currently contains ~20 routes on the two formations)

Interesting feature on this one...
After a evening in Butte we headed back out to the Blue bro project on the CDT...meeting up with Clay and Mish in process...a good day working the rig, with everyone giving it a go.

Finally the beta was figured out and Pat got the TR send. Strong work to be sure...plans for the lead are in the works, but now with the seasons changing, this might become a spring mission...
Overall a great weekend savoring the last efforts of Autumn.

A huge area to be explored, for sure--the Heart of the Batholith, eh?
