The first time I heard of the Shafer Butte 50 was a month or two ago on a trail run with my friend Ryan. He told me that the challenging 50 mile course has been a tradition in the local running community dating back to the 1980s.

When I moved to Idaho in 2011, the first thing I did was get a copy of "Idaho, A Climbing Guide" by Tom Lopez. I scoured this book, many internet sites, and lots of topo maps looking for potential adventures close to my new home. The closest steepish named mountain that I could find was Cervidae Peak.
