Fifty/Fifty…Success on Borah, Weather on Kings

Posted by on September 10th, 2013

My 2013 highpointing trip took me to Borah Peak, Idaho and Kings Peak, Utah, both for the third time.  Borah is one of the toughest climbs among the 50 state highpoints but we succeeded in getting past the aptly-named Chicken-Out Ridge and on up to the summit.  Contrariwise, the weather didn’t cooperate with our plans for Kings Peak a few days later.  Fortunately, Kings is up a beautiful valley and a pleasant hike to the base camp near Dollar Lake so having to return for a better weather window isn’t too bad.  For more details, please read my illustrated trip report.
