Boundary peak Pictures

Hello 50 for Tibet supporters,

Here are a couple of pictures from our recent climb of boundary peak.
When I get copies of the other team members photos, I'll be sure to post them as well.

After much deliberating about which of the two routes listed in the Wingers book, Highpoint Adventures we would take, we were presented with a third route. As we got above the marsh like area at the trail head and rounded the bend above tree line, we noticed a snow field that appeared to terminate only a little below the ridge leading to the summit.

The snow field we climbed is just visible above Jenn's right shoulder. Of course because we didn't follow an established trail, we had a little route finding to do on the summit ridge, but nothing too complicated.

After that it was time for all the photo's that seem to be almost required on any of our trips. Here's one I took of John with Montgomery Peak in California directly behind his back.

I assume this means you didn't make the mistake I made by descending into the wrong drainage after the climb!
;-)

It sounds like things went well and you had excellent weather. Congrats on another highpoint!

Thanks a lot Diane for your congatulatory message. We did indeed have perfect weather for all of the hikes. Nevada was the most warm but still not terrible.

As tempting as your alternate descent route was, we decided on the more pedestrian route in the interest of time. :-D
