ajonesinHigh Point #1  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2008


My first high point climbed.

Took 3.5 hours up, 3 hours down. Tons of people on the mountain.

Also, Chicken Out Ridge has a pretty easy trail around it on the West side now.

Since there is nothing new that can be said about Borah, I will throw out a quote from John Wooden:

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

kdonaldsonNF Direct  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2008


Went a few years ago up standard route. My friend Miguel came into town up and wanted to climb it - we decided to do the North Face. Ended up doing the North Face Direct route. 17.5 hours car to car.
Snow was not consolidated. Used pickets (more to make us feel better) and simu-climbed until we reached the coloir. Two belays to the main ridge and then another to the summit.

Great hike, 5 hours RT, then that evening climbed Hyndman Peak, another 5000 foot gainer, 12 miles RT. Try that. Trip report, maps and pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/state_highpoint/idaho/borah_peak_211.htm

Triad doing it in the winter and it was a bit much for me. Came back with my fiance and tackled it.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2008


Climbed with fellow SP member Bluebell08. Camped at trailhead and started climb at 5:30 AM. Was a strenuous climb. Chicken Out Ridge didn't seem that bad. The loose scree near the summit was more troublesome. One step forward and then slid two steps back. We had perfect weather. Met some neat people on the hike and had dinner with Dawn and Stephen in Mackay in the evening. HP #34.

Climbed this peak, I think in the summer of 2003. Great scramble, and a nice snow bridge to cross.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2008


I made my 27th ascent yesterday under near perfect conditions. The only thing that kept it from being perfect was the poor visibilty from the annual burn-up of the western U.S. There is a short section of snow on the small saddle at the end of C.O. ridge but otherwise the trail is dry.

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!

sprossedaBorah is a blast!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008


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.

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
