After reading a trip report from Matt Darrington who did it. I think it would be a great challenge.
Also, would like to do church, donaldson and Leatherman in a day.

I think a rope might be needed in some sections of the traverse. Also, be advised there is absolutely no snow in the super gully right now.

This section of the traverse is one of the hardest link-ups in the LRR. A rope won't help but there are sections where you have to do some exposed scrambling and route finding.

I am hoping to do all of them in a two to three day period so we could do the three you mentioned in a day that would be great I am going to start on the fourth of August if interested

I am planning on dropping down to 10.500ish and drop into the Breit... approach.

If you guys come up with a plan/route for any of the above mentioned climbs, I would be game. I will be hanging around in the LRR on August 4-5, and again on August 11-12, so keep me in the loop.

I'm coming from Pocatello however, so I'm not much help car pooling if your from Boise.

Aug. 3rd: Meet at Mackay, Pizza Rest. in the evening.
Camp at the Mackay camp ground, get up early, start up Lost River, summit, return down and drop down into the valley approach up to Breit..., return down that drainage. We will need to drop a car at that drainage.

What do you think?
