Each year, Climbing and other magazines have a "Epics" issue. Since I had read and heard of similar incidents in our own backyard, I thought it would be cool to get some stories from people right here in Idaho. So far I have spoken with a few people and got them to submit theirs. I'm also awaiting a few promised submissions from others that have had epics as well. If you'd like to contribute, look for the submission link below the stories and I'll post yours.

The Stories:

  Dave and Rob's writeup on shattering the 12ers record.

  Michael Howard describes the day he lost his brother and brother-in-law in an avalanche on Mount Borah, and the 9 months of turmoil and searching that followed.
