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!

IdahoScottHighpoint #19  Sucess!
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.

punchlineNo snow on the snowbridge.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2013


A lot steeper than I thought but the notes on SP that we read beforehand were actually pretty accurate. Another account indicated that once you leave timberline the trail was "brutally steep!" HAHA I laughed at that when I read it but wasn't laughing when I got there! No snow on the snowbridge and no issues on COR. Beautiful day with little wind.

Date Climbed: May 5, 2013


Got a somewhat late start for the day and my group decided that we'd set a 1pm cutoff for turning around. We were a bit below chicken-out ridge before hitting the cutoff, so it wasn't destined to be. Weather was fantastic and views were incredible nonetheless!

Windy but fabulous. My son made this his first Western State Highpoint. Touched my heart to have him with me on this journey to the top. My third visit.

technicolorNHshort but steep  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2013


My first class four action on an exposed ridgeline. Definite pucker factor. I did not guess the correct path over the final bottleneck on Chickenout Ridge and went right onto the scree slope to bypass it and only saw the way through once I was on the other side. Like some others have said, go directly over it. Oh well. Only added like thirty minutes and on the way back it was easy. Four hours and thirty minutes up, two hours and fifty minutes down. The guy who beat everyone to the top had a torn meniscus last year. It clearly did not slow him down this year.
