Borah Peak, summit block
The summit block of Borah Peak from near the end of "Chicken Out Ridge". The excellent trail that leads from here high into the final rocks before the summit is clearly visible.

Thanks Dean. Chicken Out Ridge really is third class scrambling with considerable exposure, but most of the rest of the climb is on trail. I found the amount and quality (good) of trail to be a little disappointing.

One thing I liked about the trail is that it doesn't mess around. It goes up, up, and away in a hurry. It doesn't meander over yinder or over yonder. In that respect, if you've got the stamina, you can get up the peak in pretty quick time. Better than 4/4 time, but not quite 2/4 time. Maybe 11/8 time.

Sounds like my kind of trail-er climb! The clouds really grabbed me in the thumbnail. Nice!

garchovVery nice shot indeed


Voted 10/10

Very nice clearly showing the trail up the summit block! I personally took to the right side of chicken out near the top and the other on the way down. I found the right (south) side more to my liking due to scrambling on solid rock with exposure rather than the rotten north side.
