midweek hike, borah peak, lost river range, idaho high point - 12,662 ft

We'll drive up to the trailhead north of Mackay, Idaho on Thursday afternoon and do the hike on Friday. This is a heavy use peak so this schedule avoids the weekend crowds. We can do another of the Idaho high points on Saturday if the group wants. This is a fairly steep hike with a bunch of scrambling and exposure, especially on the so-called Chicken Out Ridge. There may be a little snow left on the snow bridge but if so, there should be a good path through it so no ice axe will be necessary. Contact Dennis to register and determine meeting and carpooling specifics. We'll plan on at least one good meal in Mackay to support local business.
