kteichertHP #33  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2017


Took the Queen Mine route. Started at 3:40 pm from a little turn out at about 9,200'. We were following a scenic driver in a suburban that was going sooooooo slow up the road. We were two turns from the saddle, and I was so frustrated with his slow driving, that I stopped and just started hiking. This added 1.5 total miles, and 800' of elevation, but it was much faster than waiting for his slow butt to get off the road. I summitted in 1 hour 48 minutes. I thought about doing Montogomery, but was fighting the sunset, and a wife waiting in the car. Also, the summit over to Montgomery is no joke. Two big gendarmes and snow made it seem like a daunting task. Ran down most of the way and finished the 9.8 miles in 3 hours 30 minutes.

Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2016


Forgot my gloves and remembered just as I was passing through Dyer. They weren't good at all but saved my bacon. Brr the wind was a howling.
Started at 2pm and took my 2:45 up and made it just as the sun was setting via the Trail Canyon route-ish. Nice thing was that most of the bog along the creek was frozen which made hiking through much faster. Lost the non-trail several times but walking is pretty easy anyways so no big deal, I just pointed myself up to the saddle. From the saddle the trail is easier to spot and had no trouble. Small snow drifts in spots but not bad at all. No crampons or ice axe needed. Down in 2:15.

climber46Great highpoint climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2006


Climbed Boundary Peak on 6/1/2006. There was little to no snow on the route in spite of 2005-2006 being a high snow winter. I guess there was a lot more snow in the Sierras than in the White Mountains. This was a fun hike that had its challenges following the ridges and skirting around a couple of humps.

Date Climbed: Oct 21, 2016


Four hours and fifty minutes from the Trail Canyon TH. The Sierras were gleaming white on the horizon as soon as I reached the saddle, which took me two hours to get to. The trail disappears and reappears down low but once at the saddle it clearly goes left, gains the ridge, then directs you to the summit itself. Two guys from NY took the Queen Mine route but it was just the three of us for the day.

Had a terrific time climbing Boundary from the Queen Mine Trail head. Pretty straight forward climb despite the lack of trail in the upper section. Crux of route is just getting to the trail head on that gnarly road. Good times.

Beautiful day on Boundary Peak today. Conditions on the mountain are excellent: I brought mountaineering boots, crampons, and ice axe but only brought out the ice axe in the last 200' of the climb and didn't use crampons at all. Could have done the whole thing in waterproof hiking boots, my feet would have appreciated it! The register was buried in snow but luckily it was right where I drove my ice axe into the summit!

Went up the NE face instead of to Trail Canyon saddle. Next time will go up the saddle route and down the NE face route, which is very fast going down.

Hey man! I recognized your username from the Summit register on Hole-In-The-Mountain Peak. Hit me up if you're ever back toward the eastern sierra or nevada in general and want to climb!

I took a trip down towards Bishop with the intention of hiking Boundary but after stopping at some alpine lakes with fall color I really questioned why the heck I'd leave it for the desert. But, like a fool, I didn't have CA loaded onto my GPS and no maps. I finally caught of glimpse of Boundary from Mammoth and decided it'd be a fun experience. Took my 2WD drive van all the way up past Queen Mine but stopped a bit short of the saddle, can't afford a flat somewhere like this. Started out about 7AM with my two dogs and made it to the summit just before 11. Just follow the cairns and you'll be fine. A little bit of snow up high which surprised me. I had to scare away a wild horse that came charging at my dogs on the descent. Otherwise an uneventful hike. I'd like to try it this winter with some snow and maybe ski down the east face.

Driving back from a climbing trip in Yosemite and decided to tag this on the drive back. It was totally cloudy on top otherwise I might have gone to Montgomery as well.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2015


Via Queen Mine RD. Solo hike. Not a soul on the whole mountain. Left at 5:30AM and came back at 2 PM. Montgomery is much nicer to hike due to less scree and more rocks. But the whole adventure was a very tiring, not very exciting exercise. I chose to hike these two summits in order to acclimatize for the hikes that followed.

MountainHikerCOFound Hat!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2015


We were the only party climbing from Trail Canyon that day. The trail does peter out into game trails. To gain the saddle we went up to the right of the gully on the sage brush, but descended in the trees on the other side of the gully. Above the saddle the trail was fairly good and skirted the 12,140' subpeak. Above the upper saddle there were a lot of braided trails - some nicer or looser than others. We stayed closer to the ridge on the way down. We found a hat. Tell me what National Championship it celebrates and I can send it to you.

Hiked via Queen Canyon route. Added Montgomery Peak as well. Just as we got down the scree field, thunderstorms rolled in making the remaining couple of miles back to the trailhead a harrowing affair. One person in the group was struck by lightning, but he was eventually able to make it out safely.

Penelope May-Smrz and I hiked up Boundary Peak from the Queen Mine on January 25, 2015. On the long summit ridge, the wind was so strong, we considered turning back. But we persevered a bit and made the summit. The temperature was in the low teens, but luckily, the snow cover was not too deep. Pen's first 4,000 meter peak in winter, her fourth time to Boundary's summit.

Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2014


We landed in Vegas on drove up to the trailhead in a rented 4x4 Nissan Frontier. Very glad we took the truck and not an SUV. There were a few places on the 4x4 road that tried the truck. Especially at the sharp uphill right hand turn. If you go you will instantly recognize the turn. We camped up at the trailhead saddle. We couldnt have asked for a better night to camp. The temps dropped down in the high 20's and the wind never kicked up. The next morning we hit the trail as the sun came up. I did get lost on the the ridge above the saddle. I took to the left of the ridge and rocks when I should have stuck to the right. We looked for the trail on both sides and did not see it going up so we stuck to the snow on climbers left of the ridge. I think this may have added an hour to our climb. There was no other climbers on the mountain. We made summit signed the register and headed back down. The trail was visible from the summit and following the cairns down we made great time on the descent.

Took 3.5 hours to the summit via the Queen's Mine Route on Oct 6, 2014. Wandered over to Montgomery Peak after and that took an hour (one way) and was a tough ridge.

Awesome hike via the Queen Mine route. I camped at Kennedy Flats and got an early start for this one. I did both Boundary and Montgomery and then hustled back to my truck for the 8 hour drive back to SL.

Trail Canyon road was is pretty good shape, high-clearance necessary. Hike was as-described: desolate, lots of scree on the ascent, but straight-forward. Descending the scree was great, though. Nice little meadow with running water right at the trailhead.

jamesglazeUpdate on Trail Canyon access road
What is the current condition on the Trail Canyon route approach road. Last year is was washed out. I'm interested in trying again this year. Has the wash out been repaired.
