NavySeabeeNot Even Close!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2008


Man, did the weather put a damper on my climbing plans for Memorial Day.

Our plans of camping at Queen's Canyon Mine didn't materialize since my Brother-in-law didn't make it to Benton until 11 PM so we slept in the back of his jeep. Drove up to about 9200 feet and spun out so we hiked up the road from there in about 4-6" of fresh snow and minimal visibility.

Made it Queen's Canyon saddle and start our traverse around the ridge in 6-10" of snow and near white-out conditions. Vis would vary from 1/4 mile to 25 yards. Called it a day at about 10,000 feet. Not worth being a statistic.

Had to scrap Plan B (Glass Mtn Ridge) and Plan C (Crater Mtn/South Crater) as their summits became obscured by clouds and dark skies as well.

Approached via Queen Canyon Mine, and climbed up ridgeline. Followed ridgeline Southwest and set up base camp at 11,000 feet. From big ridgline, crossed saddle and climbed up Northeast slope. There was between 2" and 2' of snow with drifts towards summit. Had to turn back 700 feet short of summit becasuse partner had altitude sickness and couldn't continue. Spent three days on the mountian, and trip was approximately 6 miles round trip. Saw wild horses along the way.

Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2011


First ascent on 11-3-07 w/ Nebben. Ben and I arrived at the TH 8 hours after leaving SLC. Camped near the mine entrance (there is a usable toilet there). Next am, 3+30 up with fresh snow covering portions of the trail above the Trail Canyon saddle. Sunny and a persistent, pesky wind of maybe 10-15 mph out of the ESE. American flag at the summit: support our troops. 2+30 down. Saw about two dozen wild horses just above and east of the "real" trail head where the wooden sign stands but says nothing. 2nd time 6-20-09 with Brent en route to attempt Mt. Whitney. Some leftover winter snow above Trail Canyon saddle but no need for crampons. Dug out the ammo box containing a nice summit register book and entered the appropriate info. Many wild horses with several foals at the north end of the traverse back from Trail Canyon Saddle. #3 6-25-10 w/ Brent, Todd & Zig. Little wind (nice) and many leftover cornice snow ridges en route to the top. 3+27 up from the Queen Mine entrance TH. Eight wild horses along the traverse from Trail Canyon Saddle. Todd & I went over to Montgomery, too. #4 6-21-11 With Brent. Nice way to begin the official summer. Warm weather, some snow lingering along the summit ridge from about 12,300'. More wild horses along return trail. #5 6-20-12. Warm, breezy, prep for Montgomery & Whitney. Wild horses sighted on my drive back to Hwy 6.

Good climb. Long day. Weather went in and out. Lots of slick rocks and the trail was covered by snow from the previous day. Great hike!

and was hard to find the trail close to the summit. Much easier following the trail coming down. Otherwise beautiful hike with lots of spectacular scenery.

A great hike on a beautiful clear, nearly windless day. Had the summit all to myself. Two fighter jets soared overhead while I was on the summit. I waived my arms as they approached and I do believe one of the pilots saw me; he dipped his wing 90 degrees when he passed. This is my 21st state HP.

Via Trail Canyon and shot straight up the bowl to the east in lieu of the saddle (yeah, GREAT idea, dumbass) You ever hear of scree? Made decent time on the ascent despite myself and enjoyed Boundary and Montgomery summits (an extra 1 1/2 hrs). Made it down (via the scree of course) and out w/o seeing another soul. Who says peaks are too crowded?

4 of us climbed Boundary via the Queen Mine approach in May of '05. We had snow cover on most of the upper route so it was a most enjoyable day.

Two days after summiting Kings in Utah, Dan and I camped at the Queen Mine. Temperatures in Salt Lake and Tonopah were nearing the century mark, so we left the car/camp before five a.m. to beat the heat, and stashed a quart of water each at Trail Canyon Saddle.
Number 44 of my 49 state high points, and my last SHP above 10,000 feet (I'm ABD -- all but Denali!)

2nd attempt. Damn you scree! Some ice and snow, but less than expected. Time change shortened the day so get an early start this late in the season.

atavistexcellent stargazing  Sucess!


This climb taught me the value of gaiters. My legs were so thrashed from the dry brush, and I stayed on the trail. other notes: Before this climb, I'd never experienced such a dry lonely wasteland, Although Boundary Peak affords stargazing which nearly made up for the discomfort.

The edge

Finally #45 after the third attempt...
Three flight later to Las Vegas from Montreal and they had to loose my lugages on the third try...
Well that didn't prevent me from getting to the top...
I froze sleeping in the car at the TH just with a garbage bag as a sleeping bag... but I was mentally powered to get to the top this time no matter what!!; Finally did... 5 to go!!

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2001


I was in Sacramento for business and decided to make a run at Boundary before flying out the next evening. The drive in is a little confusing in the dark, and the scree sucks on the way up. The scree is awesome on the down though, and I arrived back at my truck in high spirits!
