Response to The Scouts Again.
I think that is all that I have to say. It has become kinda a scout tradition state wide to "climb the big one".
I dont have any official info, but my guess is that MOST of these scouts and their leaders have never attempted to climb any other large mountains before coming to Borah.
From an "idahosummits-forum regular" perspective, I wish there was someway that we could raise awareness to scouts and their leaders (and all newbies, really) that they need to get some proper training and experience before tackeling Borah.
Is there any thing we can do to help other groups realize that this is no easy task??
As a side note, I would venture to say that maybe 1000s of scouts and newbies have summited Borah without any trouble......these last few weeks have been kinda crazy up there.....forgive for the cliche "when it rains, it pours".
