ScottyS and I did this as a conditioning hike for the big plans we had for the rest of the summer. Hiked up Trail Canyon, through lots of snow, and summited in ~4.5 hours. Descent took 2:10.

Climbed with bearbnz as a early-season warm up. Always wanted to get up there! Ice axe was very helpful, crampons were optional.

More pics, etc are available on my homepage here.

Clear day. Enjoyed the first two miles as you walk nearby meadows and cow pup. Took a small break at Trail Canyon Saddle and proceeded towards the summit. Didn't feel like walking over to Montgomery Peak. Came down via the scree bowl on the far right (east).

Great hike. We started about 6:30 am and reached the peak before 9:00 am. It's well worth the trek over to Montgomery Peak, which feels more like a peak than Boundary. Camping is very limited. You are on a slope with very few level spots. Stream nearby provides plenty of water.

Definitely one of the nicest climbs/hikes I have done! After much reading on the subject, I decided to climb this peak via the Queen Canyon route. Got to the trailhead at about 12:30 PM, got my gear together, then headed out right at about 1:00 PM. The route is approximately 9 miles round-trip, so didn't make it back to my car until about 9:30 PM that evening (did it all as a "day trip," even though half of it was in the dark!). Made the summit in about 4.5 hours; right at nearly pitch black! Signed the register, took a GPS reading, snapped some photos, then headed back down. Saw not another soul on the mountain the entire time I was there! Definitely an awesome trip, especially in the dark!

Camped just up the trail from the parking area with my 15 year old son Dan. We saw many cars leaving as we were coming in so we expected this to be a very busy place. (I had climbed the mountain many years before on the 4th of July and was the only person there). Pleasent surprise! We saw only 1 other person. Only a little snow near the top (mild winter). Dan and I ran through the scree all the way down from the summit ridge to the canyon bottom. Great fun for me. Dan's first "real" mountian.

On June 23-24 Joel and I made a quick trip to Nevada to climb Boundary Peak. At 13,140 ft., it is the highest point in the state. The trip starts with a 14.7 mile trip over a rugged dirt road to the trail head. We headed up the trail which follows a small stream. Someone had painted blue arrows on rocks to help point the way. There are many cow paths, along with the cows that created them, through the willows and scrub. The main trail was pretty well traveled and well marked until a boggy spring area. We did see only one other person along the trail. Beyond the boggy area it is pretty easy to find your way. The day started out warm but cooled off nicely as night came. We spent the night among some limber pines near the head of Trail Canyon. Saturday morning had cows all around watching us. We watched the wild horses on the ridge to our north as we ate breakfast. There was a pretty well traveled trail up the side of a large bowl. Actually it looks a though there are several trails. Follow the most well traveled trail just to the right of a false summit to a saddle. The trip to this point is through scree and makes for some very slow and tough travel. Once up to the saddle the summit is in view and the trip is scrambling over larger and much more stable rock. It took us 4.5 hours from our camp site to the summit, 3.5 of it getting to the saddle. There were tremendous views of Eastern Yosemite area and Mono Lake to the Northwest, and the rest of the White Mountains to the South. Montgomery Peak loomed close by and looked like a good scramble but there were thunder storms in the area and it was already mid afternoon. Be careful as you come down from the saddle as the footing is treacherous with a fair bit of plunge stepping in the loose rock. We did have a little small hail just as we started down. Our drive back toward Lee Vining, CA we saw an amazing lightning show ahead of us as we headed west on CA Highway 120.
