cancelled - borah peak, mid-week day hike, car camp - September 7, 2016

Let's do the highest peak in Idaho, Borah Peak. This is a heavy use peak so we will do it on Thursday and avoid the weekend crowds. We'll meet at an undeveloped campground (outhouse only) on the banks of the Lost River, on US 93 about a mile south of Mackay Reservoir and about 2 miles north of Mackay on Wednesday afternoon and do the hike early on Thursday. This is a very steep hike with a bunch of scrambling and exposure, especially on the so-called Chicken Out Ridge. Drive home on Friday. Limit of 8. Contact Dennis to register and determine meeting and carpooling specifics. We'll do it again next September.
