Great climb. The climb seemed much longer than the route is listed as. Fun exposure on COR and great views. We spent the night at 10k near the bivy site and made a run up and all the way back down on day two. Great fun!!

What a mountain! Good exposure, but not that bad. Busy Mtn, but it is Idaho's tallest. Start early and don't get caught in a storm.

Climbed it with my dad when I was 13. First time ever scrambling for me. My mom and sister chickened out halfway through Chicken Out ridge.

This was my 7th or 8th trip to the top, but my 10-year-old daughter's first. She's pretty tough, but her feet were killing her when we got back to the car.

My web site has a story about Jasmine's climb of Borah Peak

TracyRoute climbed: standard winter climb (from the highway)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 9, 1985


Great winter climbing conditions. Had to hike in from the main highway. Planned to camp one night under an almost full moon. Ended up spending a tired, cold, and hungry 2nd night also. It was worth it though. I found a deputy sheriff's business card on my windshield when I got back to my car. A note asked us (Jon Tanner and I) to make a call so that he could cancel the search and rescue party that was being organized.

Up and down the Southwest Ridge in a little over 3 1/2 hours. A very interesting and beautiful mountain.

Climbed Borah on back-to-back days. Always a fun and challenging grind to the top. Also climbed the peak in August of 1999.

Snidely Whiplash

A fun, easy climb and practically snowless, making the exit from Chicken-out Ridge very easy and not scary at all.

One of my first mountain runs- I was able to keep a run for about 75% of the time. It was steep, but direct and fairly quick. There was a skiff of snow above Chicken Out and I was back to the car in 3 hrs 45 minutes

Climbed Borah on our way back to Missoula, MT from the Wind River Range. The day began overcast and smoky from nearby wildfires, but by the time we reached the summit had cleared considerably.

My 8th trip to the summit of Borah. It was a little chilly on top, but a great day!

First state highpoint for me and an awesome hike. Only saw 2 other people up there the whole day and perfect weather.

I'd climbed it in 1992 but went back with my brother so he could claim it as a highpoint. Beautiful day. 15 folks on the mountain including 9 on top. Didn't realize exactly where Chicken Out Ridge was until we got off it. No big deal. Semi-exposed 3rd class. This one gets old as you're getting down off it - that i remember from '92.

I couldn't have asked for better weather, in fact it was perfect. Borah sits in a truly a beautiful setting and I found myself enjoying the views all day. The trail wastes no time in getting its elevation and chicken out ridge was kinda fun. Of course, I had the advantage of meeting "Bob" from Boise who had been up it before and knew the route up chicken out so I didn't have any guessing on the right way to go. He also took two novices under his wing and helped them not chicken out on chicken out ridge. (both grandmothers who just needed a coach).

Outstanding views from the summit and I found the worst part to be the part where the trail goes straight down through the trees for over two thousand feet. My trekking poles saved my butt many many times. Awesome mountain. I did Hyndman the previous week and felt Borah to be tougher.

My first of 3 summit trips prior to age 20 (none since though). Gotta get back... Here’s a trip-report and some photos.

I drove down from Washington through Challis and Grand View Canyon on US 93 spotting this from the SP photos. After camping out, I started at 5:00 a.m. reaching 11,200 feet as it started to storm in the valley. I found hiking sticks to be quite useful on this mountain especially on the way down.

Joined Steve W. on his quest to reach the Idaho state high point. As a hiker he wanted somebody with climbing experience along but there was hardly any climbing. I wish the Chicken-out ridge was longer to make things more interesting. It is mostly a hike and there is hardly any snow left. Broke my altitude record on this one.

Fun long climb. I started at 5:00 and summited at 11:00. decent exposeure but I still thought that chicken out ridge was not as bad as what I had herd. all and all it made for a long butt kicking day. also my first Idaho 12er. one down eight to go.
