Route Climbed: Boreas Pass and Mt. Boreas Date Climbed: Oct. 15, 2006  Sucess!

Climbed from Boreas Pass, with Boreas Mtn. More of a winter climb than a fall climb, lots of snow, endless false summitts, and a herd of Mountain Goats.

Route Climbed: Boreas Pass Date Climbed: October 1, 2005  Sucess!

Topped all three 13,600+ summits on Bald Mountain. Amazing weather for October - shorts and t-shirt the entire trip. Views from the summit ridge are hard to top.

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: July 13, 2005  Sucess!

Started from Boreas Pass and reached the saddle in no time. From there, the route up the ridge is clear although alot of talus and scree is present.

Reached the summit in about 2.5 hours in perfect weather. The views were spectacular, especially of the ten mile ranch and Breckenridge. The view south (south park) was spoiled by haze - most likely due to the fire near Pueblo.

Route Climbed: Boreas Pass Date Climbed: June 11, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed Bald and Boreas from the pass yesterday. Since we hiked after Friday's storm, we got one last look at snowy peaks probably for a while.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: October 25, 1992  Sucess!

Starting 1/2 mile north of Boreas Pass, I followed the small drainage up to the 12,159' pass between Boreas Mtn. and Blad Mtn. Bob Martin refers to this as Black Powder Pass, although it is not named on the Boreas Pass topo. From here you head NNW up grass and tedious rock until the first of several false summits is reached. Persist on and the highest point is the NW summit, with great views to Summit county and Dillon Lake to the north. On the descent, it began snowing on me and Logan, my 4-legged climbing companion.

I returned with my wife and a friend in June 2002 and reclimbed the route, taking longer than I had remembered.

Route Climbed: Via Boreas Pass and Mount Boreas Date Climbed: September 2002  Sucess!

A giant ridge of a mountain. Mountain goats were everywhere! A nice hike. Good for those that want to look down on Breckenridge. Also offers nice views of the nearby Tenmile Mountains.

Route Climbed: Western Chutes from Boreas Pass Date Climbed: Several Dates 98-03  Sucess!

Hiked and skied these chutes many times while living in Breck. Snow is here until mid summer in most years and makes for great snow climbing and moderate to difficult sking coming down. In the right conditions one can ski summit to car nonstop.

Route Climbed: Boreas Pass Date Climbed: August 30, 2003  Sucess!

I was hoping the fog would clear but it only got worse. Once I reached the summit, it began to pour. The wind was terrible. Was lucky that the terrain was easy allowing me a quick descend.
