East Face of Mt Borah
The seldom visited 2400' East Face of Mt Borah as seen from the West Fork of the Pahsimeroi River approach. Mike Weber and I made one serious attempt on this face in 1978 but retreated after first seeing a Volkswagon sized rock tumble down our route and later that night, a flood. On the morning of our proposed climb it started to rain and in a short while there was 3-4 inches of water flowing through our biv site. During our rather hasty exit we discussed how maybe the bouncing boulder and flood were warning signs that we were not meant to be on this face. There is a Dye/Boyer route described as the East Face but from their description it only appears to include the ridge on the upper right skyline. The complex east face is split into two drainages and has two unique faces, this being the more southern of the two. The Northeast Ridge route follows the skyline above the massive buttress that dominates the right side of the east face cirque. There are now three routes on this face: East Face Routes
