Check out this traffic jam at the 20 foot crux downclimb for Borah. The snow is gone and the holds are all bomber on this bit. Even if you fell you wouldn't go all that far but you'd probably be well bruised up for it.

The two women here were doing their first effort of rock climbing ever and while they were slow, they were "go for it" at ages 56 and 52. They were amazing all day. Nothing was going to deter them from making the summit. You gotta love that special kind of person.

You seem to be getting around Dean!

I look for your eventual arrival in Colorado! Great route photo, BTW.

Re: You seem to be getting around Dean!

Thanks Aaron for the pic comment. Borah was a great hike.



I am looking forward to getting into Colorado, perhaps next year. Still much to do in the local states.

Hey Aaron, I finally did make it over to your state. I had to hike up Elbert, which was my first Colorado mountain. I'll be back next summer.

Nice work!

Dean,



I just checked out your page at COHP. Man, you are kicking but! What peaks do you have left to do in Washington?
