Hiked with RB to the climb up Chicken Out Ridge. From there we could see that there was still a lot of snow along the ridge all the way to the beginning of the talus slope up the summit. Too sketchy. A guy passed us and we saw him on top of the ridge moving fast toward the low point below the summit ridge, but one slip or the snow giving way and it's a death plunge. Even with an ice ax, seemed sketchy. Enjoyed just being up on high alpine rock! Will have to do it later in the season.

I read all of the reports about COR, but it wasn't all that difficult. The high winds made things a little uncomfortable, but overall a great hike.

My 2nd attempt on this beautiful climb. Went up with some new friends and enjoyed some perfect weather at the top with zero winds whatsoever. Started at 4:30AM and were at the peak at just over 7:30AM.

An interesting but short cl.3 scramble past the crux to finish on a pretty steep scree and talus slope.

Awesome hike. On a whim driving home from Montana I stopped to bag the peak. Took a bad route near "chicken out ridge" and got stuck in a bad place. Really got my nerves wound up. After summiting and calming down a bit I couldn't figure out why I was so worried going up - it seemed like nothing on the way down. Anyway it was a great hike - one of my favorite state high points so far!

Made the top with Isaac and Leah after being snowed on for most of the way. Chicken Out Ridge was a lot of fun. The final push to the summit was not. Nor was going down. Great weekend with family!!!

Started off my journey of climbing the state high points with Borah Peak from my home state of Idaho. We took the standard route up but dropped a little low around Chicken Out Ridge due to a low snow year. Got up and down the mountain in around 4 and a half hours.

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.

Heather and I climbed Borah one day and nearby Diamond Peak the next. It's a beautiful area.

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

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.
