Brian JenkinsAdopted by an Idaho family  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2014

Brian Jenkins

8/11/14 Started up before dawn. Ran into a family that was climbing the peak as a bucket list item. We worked our way over the first rock hump to the notch/snow traverse together and ended up climbing with them the rest of the day. I'm the new Cousin Brian to the Schaecher family from Idaho. We took photos with the flag up top not knowing it was a Jehovah's Witness one. Doh! Hiked back down together and then they gave me beer. Fun bunch to hook up with for the day.

6/20/15 Got to 12,450 with Sue. Normal route on the summit pinnacle was ice. Went up south ridge. Spicy mixed ice, rock and snow. Should be melted out soon though.

Adrenaline made going up easy, but coming back down was scary and hard. I do not recall the exact date I climbed the mountain but it was sometime around the date listed.

I summited the day after you and saw your name in the register. What an awesome climb.

harbor9th State HP  Sucess!


Hiked with my brother from twin falls. We left at 5:50am and summited right at 11:00am. Still a few long patches of snow with really big exposure at this point in the year. One on COR that was about 25 long and only about 2 feet wide at the top. COR was for sure not as bad as people make it out to be. Take your time. Make sure you have good hand holds and foot holds. We used microspikes for the snow bridges and trekking poles. The last 800ft scramble to the summit was super steep and definitely a scramble. It was very ledgy and almost no exposure. There are quite a few routes you could take that are equally obnoxious but very doable.

Hung out at the peak for probably 45 min. It was such a gorgeous day and with so much snow up top of the surrounding peaks it was more than spectacular.

4 hours down. Met 2 dudes from WY/CO that summited ahead of us by about an hour and a guy from Omaha who decided to come back later in the summer after the snow melts.

jlfriesenConquering Idaho's tallest point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2013


The highest mountain in Idaho and the highest I've personally climbed. This one never lets up so train hard and get ready to die on summit day.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2012


Tyler and I climbed on the first Wednesday in October. Fortunately there was no snow to be found, and conditions were excellent. There were 6 other people on the mountain that day with two making the summit, and four turning back at COR. It was a memorable climb!

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2006


My first highpoint after moving to Idaho, and it of course had to be the highpoint of my new home! Great climb, lots of vertical, incredible views. Managed to help my out of shape boss and his in better shape wife summit with me. A great trip.

First time up Borah. This was straight up. Only do this if you want a "9-hour Stairmaster" experience. But worth every step! Incredible!

First time on a State High Point and I plan on doing more State High Points in the upcoming years.

Amazing views. Very few people. Highly recommended.

AjaxHikerFirst climb in Idaho...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2013
And not the last! This was a great summit, unbelievable views, and beautiful weather also. Only the downclimb off COR made me even slightly nervous, the rest is just fun scrambling. Only 4 people on the mountain for this mid-week climb.

MountainHikerCONice Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2013


With MountainHikerette. Started at 4:05 am, got to Chicken Out Ridge at 8:00, summit just before 10:00, left top 10:35. Back down around 3:10. There seems to be multiple possible lines on Chicken Out Ridge. There is some real exposure in places. Other spots have some loose stuff. There are usually a lot of holds, but be sure to test them.
