Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2006


Climbed it back in 2006, forgot to sign the log. Was my first Highpoint and was very scary. I am a big wuss, but I made it along with my wife and brothers and sister in law. Very fun, but probably won't do it again!

The standard route is a blast! Chicken Out proved to be a little hairy than I expected with several narrow snow crests to cross. Lots of fun class 3 rock too.

I hiked up Borah after spending the night at the trailhead back in 1998. I had spent the week before in the Winds, so I was well acclimatized, and I had a fast time for me. I was surprised at how much junk was on the summit. There was a collection of you name it. Golf clubs, flags, and all sorts of assorted crap. It was a beautiful place to be, nevertheless.

MattGreenePhysical Day  Sucess!
Borah took me by surprise, the way it stood 5-6 thousand feet over the valley below. I enjoyed the climb from a fitness standpoint. With such a good trail, you could push a good pace both up and down, and on the way down it was easier just to run than to attempt to slow down.

Woke up at at our camp just below th trailhead to 4 iches of fresh snow. Started later in the morning that we wanted to. Got about a mile from Chicken-Out-Ridge, and decided it best to turn around due to close-to-nothing visibility, continuous snow fall, and fading daylight. I'll be back

Climbed this large pile of rocks on Labor Day and had tons on company. It was calm, very hot, and fantastic. Enjoyed Chicken Out Ridge, although many turned back. Very tiring climb, definitely enjoyed the six pack after that one! Be Safe

Day trip up the Chick-out Ridge. Used this as a "training" climb for an upcoming trip to Gannett Peak in WY.

reboyles26th Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2007


I made my 26th trip to the summit on Monday under perfect conditions. The W. Ridge, or standard route is completely dry and the smoke from the fires stayed south of the mountain for both days that we were there. For those contemplating the N. Face, the upper gully is completely dry so you might want to consider the 1 pitch N.E Ridge, the Direct, or the main gully finish.

I found a nearly new pair of men's N.Face hiking shoes on the table at the bottom. If you send me an e-mail I'll gladly ship these back to you.

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2007


Easy climb. First to the summit, counted 22 people on the mountain that day. Was number 7 of my 9 12ers. Nice to finally be on the top of Idaho. Chicken out ridge was pretty simple but fun.

Climbed via the standard route and Chicken Out (nice). This mtn. redefines class 3 as "boulder-hopping with consequences!" Good times.

We were the first up for the day, but on the way down once the crowds were streaming up the slope, there was lots of rockfall from the loose stuff on the trail. We assisted one hiker (another Vermonter coincidentally) whose face was pretty bloody from a direct hit on the head.
