I didn't see any information on this seldom climbed peak in the LRR, www.summitpost.org didn't have anything.
I'd like to see route and summit photos and hear about it.

What angle would you like to see it from? Here's one I took a long time ago, and you might find others by looking through the photos that are on the SummitPost page for Borah.

Are you interested in the route from Borah Peak, or the approach from Merriam Lake?

I'm looking for any and all photos of the East side of Sac and Borah that folks are willing to post. Above you will see some great shots. Thanks.

Kevin,

How much do you have in your checking account? Actually, I'll take a breakfast along with that dinner you still owe me and call it good. First of all, we were one cirque from Sac in Sept and forget about that approach if you think you could drive in there. Doublespring Pass is not plowed in the winter so even if you can make it to the pass you've got a long way to go on your snowshoes. It'd consider a snowmobile, ATV, horse or my XC gear (if there was snow...) to get into the Pahsimeroi valley.

Here are some Splattski links you might have missed.

Here is a photo of a route that we made 3 serious attempts on. The red line is the completed part, the yellow unfinished. You're looking at 3 full pitches (red line) so you can get some idea of the scale. The strata is deceiving on first look and it appears to be holdless but most of the fracturing is upward making for some good holds. It's very sharp too so a two-rope system would be safer to use for sure. Stay away from the deeper gullies unless they are full of ice. When dry, they are all loaded with loose rocks that can unload with one wrong move. I was on the receiving end of this once and it was by and far the worst rockfall I've ever experienced in my life. Call it LRR near-death experience number 3. Some years the gullies ice up, bottom-to-top and you could put together an awesome mixed line but I haven't seen those conditions in the last decade or two. From Borah, I've studied a couple of different different lines that I know would go but would take some real commitment. Like the other big steep LR faces, bailing off is not a good option. I think the thought of rapelling on some LR rock is what drove us to finish almost everything we started up there. Dean's route is to the far right in this photo and like most LR photos, there's foreshortening due to the scale. The approach to the NF of Sac is the same one we used for the EF of Borah. Bob

There IS a summit post page, but due to spelling differences you would not have found it spelled with a 'j'. In my defense, from Wikipedia:

" Lewis and Clark's original journals mention Sacagawea by name seventeen times, spelled eight different ways, each time with a "g"."

This is interesting. If a person did a search for the mountain they would come up empty handed. I usually start with the range and then the mountain, and look at routes.
A big thanks to Bob for the blindfoldless beta.
Could Z-man drop me a line?
