Boren Creek/South SlopesPosted On:

A large boulder blocks the Boren Creek Road just past the creek crossing. ATVs, but not road vehicles, can get through. Highest parking and turnaround area below the boulder is about 1/4 mile in from CR 124, where there are open areas on each side of the road that can fit two vehicles. I summited via the gully marked "YES" in the picture. Not sure which gully Dave Cooper recommends in his book, but I went most of the way up both gullies marked "Maybe" and couldn't find a good way from either to the summit. From the "YES" gully I stayed left where it forks, then went almost all the way to the top before turning back around to the left (west) to begin Class 3 climbing towards the summit. Rock is decently stable once leaving the gully. All the gullies are crap. God I hated this mountain.
