Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2017
Don't be in too much of a hurry to regain the ridge after descending Boundary, its easier to lose a bit of elevation and regain it.

DieselMontgomery and Boundry day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2015


Driving up Queen Mine Rd. from Bishop. From Boundary Peak 1 hour and 15 minutes casual hike.Solo hike with nobody else in sight. I would have thought that the potential of bagging two peaks in one day hike would bring here hoards of people. Surprisingly, I did not see one single person the hole day. And yes, on Queen Mile Rd any type of car will drive, but for the last two miles there is no way a sedan can negotiate the 3-4 big holes in the road. I left the trailhead at 5:30AM and got back to car at 2:00PM.

Tagged this one along with Boundary Peak Oct 6, 2014. Tough, solid 3rd class scramble over from Boundary needed 1 hour over and 1.5 hours back to Boundary.

Along with Boundary. Fun traverse between the two. I enjoyed the novelty of crossing the California/ Nevada border at 13,000 ft.

jdmorehouseNon-standard route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2013


The "non-standard" part refers mainly to the way we got to Boundary, the jumping off point for Montgomery. However, we got into some sketchy terrain on some of the "obstacles" on the ridge between Boundary and Montgomery.

From Boundary, I really enjoyed this leg of the trip. Tried to make it as Class 3 as possible without disrupting too many big blocks. Very cool day tagging 2 peaks in 2 states within an hour. :) And yes, we saw a herd of 10 wild horses on the way back to the truck.

Climbed after Boundary. I enjoyed the ridge and final scramble to Montgomery much more than the loose scree slog to Boundary Peak. Did the Queen Mine Route. WE had perfect weather

Alex WoodLost Trekking Poles  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 20, 2011

Alex Wood

Sub-zero temperatures all day long with howling winds. There was hardly any snow at all. We brought crampons and ice axes but didn't even need them. We had no issues driving to the TH for the Queen Mine Route. I left my trekking poles on the scree/talus slope just below the summit. I had put them down on accident and then I walked away (thats what AMS will do to you). If you find them, PLEASE PM ME! I will pay for shipping! Awesome summit!

A very nice hike in the White Mountains. The traverse from Boundary was much easier than expected. Made it back to the car well before the thunderstorms started.

Made the traverse over from Boundary Peak. I got over to the west near the summit (dumb idea) and ended up climbing steep and loose rock. I accidentally pulled a chair size rock loose, and narrowly avoided getting crushed, escaping with just some scrapes on both legs.

The scramble to Montgomery from Boundary is sketchy!!! But the view is better. Took me about 45 minutes each way from Boundary.

Followed the ridge over from Boundary. Beautiful peak, definitely worth the trip over.

Moogie737Boundary to the top route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2010


After bagging Boundary Todd & I undertook the interesting and sometimes tricky scramble to Montgomery. 1+05 over, same back. Surprised to find another ammo box holding a neat summit log book. Not a lot of entries in it for some reason... Very little wind to hinder us on this overcast day. Worth the trip from Boundary Peak provided one has the time. #2 June 20, 2012. Saw summit entry from another salt laker from two days earlier!

Many routes to choose from. Nothing to hard, but worth it to do.

PharmacistSolo from Boundary  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2009


The most challenging part is on the NV side. Descended on the south side of the ridge. Lots of loose scree, had to climb at a upward angle just to stay even. I had the summit to myself. Good workout climbing up the scree back to the Boundary and over to the north side and back out. Looks a little intimidating from Boundary, but I'm glad I decided to do it.
