Bora Mountain Bora Mountain

A friend and I are looking at hiking Bora Mountain in Idaho the 3rd week in June. The course we are planning is the Chicken-out ridge path. Can anyone fill me in with some guidance on there still being snow up there. We are not planning on using axes or cramp-on's. Otherwise we will do late July. Thank you ahead of time for the advice.

Wanna Work My Way Up To Granite Peak - Where Do I Start?

We come visit Montana a week or two each year and stay in the Helena area. We've hiked Mount Ascension and Mount Helena a few times, but what I really want to do is work my way up to Granite Peak. What are some good peaks to work on before jumping in there? Any input is greatly appreciated.

Gannett: South side of Wells Creek to avoid The Cleft?

The topo and aerials of the Wells Creek approach to Gannett seem to suggest there might be one or two fingers of scree on the south side of Wells Creek that would take you up to Lake 10805 from which you could head straight east, thereby avoiding The Cleft altogether. I've never been up Wells Creek, does anyone have some insight into this idea?

Summit Mountain in the Beartooths

Has anyone ever tried climbing Summit Mountain (11,704') in the Beartooths? I'm looking to get into the Beartooths a few times this summer and from the map that peak looks like it would be a great view and potentially a great climb.

My main concern is whether it is actually climbable without ropes, having never even set eyes on it. It certainly doesn't look too steep but you never know. Having climbed Granite I know ...

Solar Eclipse Over Under

With Monday's total eclipse passing directly over the tetons and winds, what's the over under on accidental deaths on Monday? I suspect that the tetons will be reasonably controlled by the nps, but in the winds (specifically Gannett, Fremont, and most Titcomb peaks) to be completely overrun. My guess is that someone falls off the snowbridge on Gannett, gets swallowed up by the glacier, and that someone stumbles over the NE face of Fremont. Hope ...

Glacier National Park/Nyack Coal Creek Loop

Hi, looking in mid September to head to glacier to do the Nyack Coal Creek Loop. Limited information out there on this route so was looking to see if anyone has experience doing this. From what I've read the loop seems very demanding, overgrown but it takes you into some awesome remote backcountry off the beaten path. I understand it's a walk in permit. You think we would have any problems getting one? Also the ...

Gannett Peak - Wells Creek Cleft Beta

I have a small group approaching Gannett via either Tourist Creek or Wells Creek at the beginning of September and am wondering if anybody can describe the crux of the Cleft in the Wells Creek approach in greater detail, specifically the option of crossing the creek. It has been a hot year, so I'm anticipating that the water may be low in the creek that late in the summer and that the Cleft may be ...
