No Snow  Sucess!

Drove all the way to Queen Mine with no problem at all. Started at 5:30 and summited at 11:00am. Sub-zero temps all day long. So cold! There was hardly any snow at all. We brought crampons and ice axes and didn't have to use them at all. I left my trekking poles on Montgomery, if you find them, please PM me! Awesome summit with awesome views.

Snow and the Flu  Sucess!

I had the flu and it was a tough day. Very remote. Saw only one person all day. We parked at the wrong spot and it made the trip much longer than it should have been. A couple feet of snow and some wild horses, glissading. A real gem.

State Highpoint #41!!!  Sucess!

After a nearly two-year hiatus from State Highpointing, a friend and I sought out, and successfully summited, Boundary Peak.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: The so-called "scree" is just loose gravelly-sand... kind of annoying but manageable. The loosest stuff is on the lower slopes; the upper slopes are bouldery. Also, there is a well-defined trail basically leading from the Trail Canyon TH to the summit; no scrambling needed and very easy to follow. I wouldn't rate this as a peak for amateur hikers, but it is not very difficult, either.

From Queen Mine Saddle  Sucess!

A very nice hike in the White Mountains. Traversed over to Montgomery as well and made it back to the car well before the thunderstorms started.

Trail Canyon Variant  Sucess!

What holds this mountain up? A tremendous amount of loose scree on the variant. Great views of the Sierra's from the ridge once the scree was below us.

Trail Canyon Variant  Sucess!

Altitude impacted me far more than I was expecting and the slog up the sandy Trail Canyon variant slope took me quite a bit longer than I was planning.

Anyone done both the Trail Canyon and Trail Canyon variation routes and can compare the two? Might try the standard route if I go back to do Montgomery at some point. The variant was a rather steep overly sandy slog.

Pics/commentary are here.

via Queen Mine  Sucess!

Managed to summit despite a very late start. Still a few small patches of snow, but nothing serious.

Windy and all alone  Sucess!

Biggest challenge was the dirt road and locating the Queen Canyon TH. Got nervous the last 20 feet of the 4-wheel drive road so I got out of the Montero and walked up. Very windy that day. Saw only three other people but no fresh tracks to the summit. Getting to 13,140 helped for doing Mt. Whitney on May 28th.

Wild  Sucess!

What a great adventure. A great drive/hunt to find the Mountain, a lonely, quiet camp spot, a faint trail that we lost immediately, a steep face that rolled away as we stair-milled up - redlining our heart rates, a decent descent trail (the right one), amazing views and wild horses on the hike out. This mountain captured the essence of wilderness and solitude for me. I miss it.

Fun failure

We set up camp as snow began falling at the Queen Mine. By morning, snow blanketed the entire area, and progress was slow. We donned snowshoes before long, then removed them as the snow thinned out on the wind blown ridge. By noon, we had only made it to around 12,000 feet, below the false summit, and the weather did not seem to be clearing. We returned to camp, packed up, and headed for burgers, beer, and the bright lights of Vegas.

West ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the west ridge starting from the trail canyon trailhead. Single day, but very long going this way, we saw HUGE quartz boulders along the way. I ran out of water at the summit and was mildly dehydrated (N/V, headache, Dizzyness) by the time we got back to camp.

Very Windy  Sucess!

Hit this one between Shasta and going to AZ for the AZ trail. I started out very late at night and camped on a rock above the bristlecones, going up well after dawn. Didn't feel like doing the adjoining, higher peak (Montgomery) in CA.
