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.

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.

Cascade ScramblerChicken out what?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007

Cascade Scrambler

"Chicken Out Ridge" disappointed me. We waited 45 minutes to gain the entrance to the ridge due to a large bottleneck of people who were obviously contemplating chickening out. At this point we thought that the ridge must be pretty gnarly if all those people were backing off (they were not descending). Once we gained the entrance to the ridge, it was a piece of cake. Taking the trail on the north face of the ridge allowed us to bypass at least 20 people who were struggling on the south side. I'm still wondering what I got all psyched out about, hoping that it might be difficult, but I guess each person's level of comfort is different. 5.5 hours to the top (including that 45 minute wait at Chicken Out Ridge), 2 hours to get down. Great views, nice hike.

I made my 25th successful ascent this past August. 7 trips up the N. Face and 18 on the W. Ridge. Going for 30 if my knees last long enough. I find poles to be most useful for the descent.

A friend and I climbed the infamous "Chicken Out Ridge". Although neither of us had any true scrambling experience before, and we analyzed every available handhold/foothold in the rocks, we still successfully traversed the ridge and then the summit (and on our first attempt)! During our descent we gave advice & assistance to several ascending hikers, and, for me, the steep descent was great assisted by a hiking stick.
