Route Climbed: Trail Canyon Variation Date Climbed: July 10 2000  Sucess!

Left for trail canyon saddle, climbed steeply to the ridge on the southeast side well before reaching saddle. I liked the variation. Not a cloud in the sky and I had the mountain to myself...all day.

ScottyS and I did this as a conditioning hike for the big plans we had for the rest of the summer. Hiked up Trail Canyon, through lots of snow, and summited in ~4.5 hours. Descent took 2:10.

Climbed with bearbnz as a early-season warm up. Always wanted to get up there! Ice axe was very helpful, crampons were optional.

More pics, etc are available on my homepage here.

Clear day. Enjoyed the first two miles as you walk nearby meadows and cow pup. Took a small break at Trail Canyon Saddle and proceeded towards the summit. Didn't feel like walking over to Montgomery Peak. Came down via the scree bowl on the far right (east).

Great hike. We started about 6:30 am and reached the peak before 9:00 am. It's well worth the trek over to Montgomery Peak, which feels more like a peak than Boundary. Camping is very limited. You are on a slope with very few level spots. Stream nearby provides plenty of water.

Route Climbed: Queen Canyon Mine Route Date Climbed: 11-02-01  Sucess!

Definitely one of the nicest climbs/hikes I have done! After much reading on the subject, I decided to climb this peak via the Queen Canyon route. Got to the trailhead at about 12:30 PM, got my gear together, then headed out right at about 1:00 PM. The route is approximately 9 miles round-trip, so didn't make it back to my car until about 9:30 PM that evening (did it all as a "day trip," even though half of it was in the dark!). Made the summit in about 4.5 hours; right at nearly pitch black! Signed the register, took a GPS reading, snapped some photos, then headed back down. Saw not another soul on the mountain the entire time I was there! Definitely an awesome trip, especially in the dark!

Route Climbed: Trail Canyon, left fork Date Climbed: 5/28/2001  Sucess!

Camped just up the trail from the parking area with my 15 year old son Dan. We saw many cars leaving as we were coming in so we expected this to be a very busy place. (I had climbed the mountain many years before on the 4th of July and was the only person there). Pleasent surprise! We saw only 1 other person. Only a little snow near the top (mild winter). Dan and I ran through the scree all the way down from the summit ridge to the canyon bottom. Great fun for me. Dan's first "real" mountian.
