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

Let's do the highest peak in Idaho, Borah Peak. This is a heavy use peak so we will do it on Friday and avoid the Saturday crowds. This is a very steep hike with a bunch of scrambling and exposure, especially on the so-called Chicken Out Ridge. We'll meet at an undeveloped campground (outhouse only) on the banks of the Lost River on Thursday night. I plan to do another of the Idaho high points on Saturday so we will camp again Friday night and then plan to eat and motel it in Mackay on Saturday night to support local businesses. Drive home on Sunday. Limit of 8. Contact Dennis to register and determine meeting and carpooling specifics.
