I was only able to find a few trip report and vids on this area.

I was going to do it last year but never could get a weather window. In a good snow year, there are turns to be had in the Pueblos as well. Let me know if you’d be interested…. Also, seems there’s a number of folks interested in the Wallowas……we should get a group of splitters together next year for a hut trip!

I’ve been eyeing a line on the east side about a mile south of Kiger Gorge that I know will go. Lots of possibilities down there… March 17, 2012 at 3:32 am #653206 iriecoyote 291 Posts Also, seems there’s a number of folks interested in the Wallowas……we should get a group of splitters together next year for a hut trip!

March 26, 2012 at 7:56 pm #653208 bigdood 457 Posts My favorite never done route would be something in the Wallowas. :headbang: March 27, 2012 at 3:56 am #653209 iriecoyote 291 Posts I found a copy at 50% off at rei. I’m out of this contest. good luck all! March 27, 2012 at 7:11 am #653210 radam 25 Posts So many… I’ll throw in Diamond Peak via the Bear Creek drainage (along with phreadi). And Tumalo also for the ease of access and when Bach is socked in. Definitely interested in a Wallowas trip next year with other splitters! Headed to Three Sisters yurts in late April for a second visit. Cheers.
