Scrambling Man

Took the west ridge/SW face route. Pretty good climb. Thunderstorms made us retreat off the summit shortly after reaching the top.

It's a fun mountain but dang, the scree on the way to the summit is quite slippery! Did the standard route and if I ever go up it again, I'm wearing a helmet.

What a great climb! Our final 12'er. Instead of following the route in Tom's book we headed up a drainage that provided us solid rock and a little climbing to take the ridge. Then when we got to the pillars we learned that there is a trail behind them now, so we didn't have to circumnavigate them. The face was challenging, but fun. Really a great climb.

Strike two. Made it to the top of the southwest ridge. It had been snowing since 4am but looked like it might break. Then the wind and snow picked up and visibility dropped so we bailed. Maybe try this one in the summer next time.

mtybumpoHappy Birthday!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2009

Climbed this one as my birthday present to myself. So far this is my favorite 12er. It is also my 5th of the 9. We started before sunrise in the morning and got lost a few times because the trail is hard to follow in places. The descent was quite the scree slide. We went down the Southwest face, dodging cliffs as we went and stirring up quite a bit of dust. I highly recommend Mt. Idaho.

warm day- felt like midsummer. Not as much scrambling as I expected. Primarily a class 2 hike. Great views of Borah. Summit register has gone missing

Powered by gu's, licorice, and tootsie rolls as the rest of it tasted like cardboard.

It is possible to drop straight off the west face and punch through the scree to the basin. Finding a doable break through the cliffs is a challenge and left me wondering if it was really quicker. A traverse over to Peak 11967 looks like an even bigger challenge.

Great climb with Brendon and Erik. Climbed the standard route up Elkhorn creek, then the west ridge. A nice way to finish off my 12ers. Great views of Borah. Here’s a trip-report and some photos.

Climbed the Elkhorn Creek route, it was a great climb. We had a blast scrambling up the peak. From the saddle we had the most amazing views of Mount Borah I had ever seen.

Approached from Elkhorn Creek. The hike up the saddle wasn't bad. We stuck to the vegitation to the left and found the goat trail to the saddle. Getting around the pillars was tricky, but great scrambling. Hit a snow field for about 500 of the last 1000 ft. Made the summit in about 6hrs. Great views of Borah all day. I would rate this as my favorite 12er so far.

I approached the mountain from Elkhorn Creek. It was a nice hike into the basin below the west face. The climb up to the saddle on the ridge was steep but the rock was better than I had experienced on other mountains in the range. The route had a little bit of everything. I can see why many people consider this their favorite 12er.

Solo climb, T shirt weather, not too much smoke- and I could clearly see people on Borah.
On return, I saw boot tracks over the top of mine.. but never did see any people.

Approached from Cedar Creek from Borah trailhead. It is a better alternative to Elkhorn Creek. This canyon is seldom visited and very beautiful. I recomend this approach. Oh yeah, the climb was good too.
