      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Borah Peak Fall Conditions

Recommended Posts

I am heading to Pocatello (from Seattle) for a week (November 17-21) and am hoping to climb Borah while I am there. Any thoughts on conditions this time of year - Skis, snowshoes, screws, pickets, etc.??? How much snow have they gotten so far?

 

Also, if anybody is in the area and would be interested in joining me, I would love to have a compadre.

 

Thanks!!!

I did the north face of Borah a couple years back in the first week of November. We had a bit of a wallow. We used snowshoes to get to the mountain and then swam up the vast majority of the route. We placed a couple pickets towards the top when things got a little steeper, but the screws we carried were pretty much useless.

 

I have no idea what kind of snow they have gotten this year though.

I live there, and there is no snow in town right now. We climbed Borah 2 weeks ago and there was a good deal up there already and probably a lot more now. I climbed Scout Mountain on Saturday and the conditions were still great... only at the very top did we find ourselves punching holes...while following giant moose tracks! Massacre Rocks is only a little south of town too. For reason it is much toastier there than anywhere else in the area. Have fun!
