Idaho Mt Borah Area?
I have the opportunity for a 3 to 5 day trip in the Mt Borah area. I would like to include a climb of Borah in a possible loop.Any ideas?Bears?Thanks
Judging by the descriptions at SummitPost it looks like a great peak. I would estimate that considering the peak's proximity to the Yellowstone ecosystem it is still well within grizzly country. This is all hearsay as I've not visited the Borah Roadless Area myself. I estimate it will be a quality excursion as Idaho is home to some wonderful country.
No need to worry about Grizzly Bears in the Mt. Borah region. The peak is considered a long one day climb from the nearest roadhead. One very exposed section near the summit. Class 2-3.
I am looking at the Lost River Range Traverse. Dave, do you know what the snow conditions are? Am I going to need snowshoes, ice axe?I have about 5 days to kill. Sam, don't say Grizzly to loud, the word makes me nervous.
Thanks for chiming in, Dave as I was getting pretty speculative there. This photo below from May of 2007 may be of some insight into the status of the peak in May. According to my sources this climb is typically accomplished in late summer. I'm sure Dave could comment on this as well as he is much more local than I.
