I was reluctant to waste any more cartilage on another climb up (no, down) Mt Borah's southwest (Chicken-Out) ridge but had agreed to go on one more trip (#28) with my daughter Anne and her friend Kyndal. Anne and Kyndal have been friends from first grade through their graduation from college in 2010. For most of their senior year in New York City they trained on the 6 floors of stairs in their apartment and after graduating in 2010 they were ready to come home and climb Idaho's highest peak - Mt Borah 12,662'. Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to postpone our trip until this summer - Aug 21, 2011.

Fantastic route photos...it is unfortunate that all of you didn't make the summit...but discretion is the better part of valor.

I enjoyed all your pictures of a great adventure. I rank Borah as one of my favorite climbs and your pics bring back some nice memories. Thanks for sharing.

I think this is the best explanation of Chicken Out I have ever seen. And I've done Chicken Out more than 10 times.
Bow to the Sensei!
