Let’s hope this current snow system doesn’t just keep going or it may be august/SeptemberI have definitely been leaning towards some sort of mapping error from the beginning. The error is likely compounded in some way, there is no way its a 1k+ tall pillar. Just like if it was a big hole there would be pictures of it online and hiking trails to that spot already. Probably a rock formation no more than 150-200 ft above the surrounding rock.
I am still thinking I should hike in there next June and see if there are bears around. We'll see if ends up being a HTrs of North Idaho trip.
