Climbed from Boreas Pass, with Bald Mtn. More of a winter climb than a fall climb, lots of snow, and a herd of Mountain Goats!

Holy smokes, I love irony as much as the next, but the wind on Boreas literally had me crawling near the saddle and the summit. Ridiculous conditions, but the view down to South Park is priceless.

Climbed Bald and Boreas from the pass. A nice quick outing when that's what you need!

Nice fall summit... Combines well with Bald. I remember a lot of mountain goats too.

Great little hike with exceptional views of Guyot and Bald. Not windy at all this day.

We first attempted to climb this in June 2002, but were notified by personnel from the National Guard, wearing camo and driving a Hummer, that our planned climb was within Pike National Forest which had been deemed off-limits to backcountry recreation due to the extreme fire danger and the existing Hayman fire. So that day we instead climbed Bald Mtn. to the north, staying within the boudary of Arapahoe National Forest..



We returned in Sept., after the release of restrictions, and climbed up the autumn tundra and talus to the summit area where we met Boreas's namesake...40 to 50 mph winds from the north. Although chilly on the summit, there wasn't much early season snow and once back down 500 verticle feet, the winds abated and we continued back down, shedding the layers from above.



The summit register is under-used especially considering the views on top of South Park, the Mt. Evans group and the Ten Mile Range. A great summit, despite it's low rank among the thirteeners.
