Great Climb and basically had the mountain to myself. Saw some wild mustangs and got rain and thunder the day before. Great time, great climb!

Great views of the Sierra from up there. It was pretty cool looking at Mt. Sill from across the owens valley which was our next destination in the days that followed. Thanks for inviting me John.

Car camped at Queen Canyon Saddle and started our hike around 0640. Lots of volunteer trails heading up the north ridge, but they all seemed to end at the same spot. Very little wind and some nice puffy afternoon clouds made for a perfect day on Boundary. Continued over the traverse to Montgomery

Took me four tries to make it up this darn peak. I have never seen a mountain with such a nasty weather. Finally summitted after getting an alpine start. TR is on my website.

After reading posts,route finding sounded sketchy. But we found an obvious, easy-to-follow, signed trail. We had a little wind on top, but no clouds. Beautiful view of the Sierras. Great glissading on the return.

Met a couple of local 395 guys that were trying to camp on Montgomery. They got turned around when one guy took an unplanned glissade off the ridge to Montgomery. He arrested himself and his pack with a hiking pole.

Stayed at the Bed & Breakfast in Benton Hot Springs, CA. Drove most of the way up the road across from the old brothel until we thought it was too rough for our rental. Started hiking at about 7:00 AM. Walked about a mile to the trailhead. Had a nice hike until we got to the rocks and scree. Got off the trail and had a lot of difficulty climbing on the rocks. Took a lot longer than normal. Signed the register and took some pictures and then headed down. We reached our Ford Expedition and then drove to Lone Pine, California to do Mount Whitney the next day. Desolate country. HP #4.

Got a little overconfident, late start, walked up the 4WD section of the road, and only made it to the top of the scree section at 12k or so, when the temp dropped 10 or 20 degrees, and nasty black clouds chased us out of there. Got snow and heavy rain on the way back to the mine.

Summited in spite of hat-flappin' migraine-inducing winds this time, 2009.

Fun hike - there are some great towers near the summit, with 3rd-5th class routes on them....

Navigated through a maze of ducked use trails to reach the summit on this fine day. Saw some wild horses at trail canyon saddle.

Left Las Vegas at 3:30, started hiking around 8:30, hiked to the top then drove back as a long day hike. Because of the variable snow, I didn't follow the normal route.

An initial slog through brush and mud. I enjoyed the scree skiing down the big chute as a short cut back to the trailhead.

Nice view from the top and from the notch. We were nearly stopped for a second time due to weather, but the wind shifted in our favor this time. The route up to the notch from the saddle is easier if you climb high on scree pile.

Quit at 11,600 due to weather; rain and hail; got completely soaked coming down.

I had grand ambitions of ticking off three DPS peaks from Middle Creek, doing a big loop around Boundary, Montgomery, and Dubois. Turned out the drive to the trailhead from Bishop took several hours, via one of the gnarliest "roads" my Subaru's negotiated to date, and I didn't get started until almost 11am, so I had to leave Dubois for another day.



There was only a little moderate bushwhacking while gaining the ridge above the canyon, but the descent from Montgomery was another story. That day's pair of hiking pants had to be retired after being ripped to shreds on the way back. On the more positive side of things, the traverse between Boundary and Montgomery was fun, and seemed more like class 4 in a couple of places as I kept pretty religiously to the crest of the ridge.



This was my first (and last) visit to Middle Creek.

Wonderful day and summit success. Had the entire Boundary/Montgomery massiff to myself, except for the herd of wild horses (5 adults, 4 colts) at Trail Canyon Saddle. Hit Montgomery too of course. Avenges (sp?) the Nov04 blizzard attempt as has rwkent and cp0915.

Summitted with cp and others. Great weather (unlike our previous attempt in a raging blizzard). Road is clear to the saddle above Queen Mine. Trail is clear of snow to Trail Canyon Saddle and beyond. Still quite a bit of snow above 12K just to make things interesting. Montgomery was a real bonus!

Got it this time - failed in blizzard conditions during my first try in November 04. Not nearly as much of a slog as I'd expected. Still quite a lot of good snow left on the upper mountain. Perfect weather, perfect conditions, great company - a terrific day in the mountains. Traversed over to Montgomery afterwards.

-9/11/09: As an honored member of the 'Summit for Heroes' team, I again visited Boundary Peak as peak #2 of a 4-peak day out of the Queen Mine trailhead, starting with Trail Canyon Peak and ending with Kennedy Point and Mustang Mountain. I also climbed the fantastically aesthetic spire just below (and north of) Boundary's summit.
