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.

The road and trail were in fine shape up from the mine. Up to the top in 2hours 10 minutes, down in 1 1/2 hours. There was deep snow along the top ridges, and a very large avalanche down the Northeast Bowl. Took an ice axe, but didn't need it as the snow was soft.

This hike had me tired. Was it from jet lag or altitude? I don't know. Technically easy all day hike from the Trail Canyon trailhead.

After starting out at 8200ft below the Queen's Mine, we attempted to climb a spur ridge that connected to the main ridgeline. We spent several hours plowing through deep powder and reached the 11000ft mark only to be whited out. An adventure, but an unsuccessful one.

I don't think I can express in words how much I despise willows. Got off trail (because there really wasn't one) and went straight up the bowl on the right side instead of going to the saddle on the left. Got caught in a couple of rock slides and called it quits for the day.

well, the book we were working out of was seriously out of date. No signs or trail-head, in fact no trails except those made by the wild horses. Compass and map very useful. It was a high elevation desert cross country trek that took us past mountain mahogany and pines and rugged rock out-croppings. Only other climbers were a small herd of wild horses, seen in the distance.

Beautiful, clear day, but with a fierce and unrelenting wind. Steep trail after the saddle, but worth the effort. Couldn't find the register at top. Bummer.

We had nearly perfect weather to start the day, but clouds kept building in. This kept the temperature nice and cool and the rain didn't start till we were almost at the car.

This was a fun challenging hike, although I did get a pretty bad case of altitude sickness at about 12,000 ft. The last 1,000 was pure hell and the only thing that kept me going was knowing that I did not want to come back to get this one. I lost my lunch of Clif bars on top, to the amusement of my climbing buddy, Brandon Nielson. A storm was blowing in, so we made a quick descent. On to Whitney (See trip report)

Perfect day, no wind on top and what a stellar view of all the Nevada and Sierra peaks. Fellow Sp'er Dennis went on and did Montgomery. I was amazed to see no one else on this fantastic day.
