      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!

Mt. Borah North Face as early summer snow climb?

Recommended Posts

I'm road-tripping from the east coast to Seattle mid-June, with scheduled stops in CO and WY for some moderate snow climbing and rock scrambling (I'll be solo).


I've seen Mt. Borah done as a fall early-season ice climb and generally it gets described as such. With the fat snowpack this year, on paper, sounds like it could be a fun moderate snow scramble. I don't see a lot of TRs for this area in general, and none for this mountain in early season. Is there a good reason?


Any other moderate Sawtooth scrambles worth thinking about? This area is just out-of-the-way enough that I'd like to sample its worthwhile offerings while driving through as I don't see myself heading back that way willfully in the near future. Since I'm solo none of the finer alpine rock routes are on the table.

You may also want to post this in the Forum for idahosummits.com. I'm not familiar with the route, but there has been some discussion about it on that forum.
