I was inspired to put together a collection of photos of Mount Borah’s faces and ridges.
The faces and ridges of Mount Borah.
The East Face of Mount Borah. The East Ridge (upper left) and the Northeast Ridge (upper right skyline). The large buttress (Super Buttress) dominates the upper right skyline. Bob Boyles Photo
The East Face Cirque. From left to right on the skyline: East Ridge, East Face, Northwest Ridge (Super Buttress), and Upper East Ridge. Bob Boyles Photo
Looking down the East Ridge of Mount Borah. This ridge rises abruptly between the drainages of the East Face of Mount Borah and the North Face of Mount Sacajawea. Wes Collins Photo
Looking down the Super Buttress and the Upper East Ridge. This ridge forms the boundary between the East Ridge and Upper East Face and intersects the Northeast Ridge below the summit of Mount Borah. Wes Collins Photo.
From left to right: East Ridge, East Face, Upper East Ridge, and Upper East Face.

The Upper East Face of Mount Borah. This face ends on the Northeast Ridge and does not lead directly to the summit. Access to this face is from the Rock Creek drainage on the east (Pahsimeroi) side of the mountain. Margo Mandella Photo
The Upper East Face of Mount Borah. The Upper East Ridge (left) and the Northeast Ridge (right foreground). The Northwest Ridge and summit are just visible in the back. John Platt Photo
The North Face of Mount Borah. The Northeast Ridge (left skyline) and the Northwest Ridge (right skyline). Dan Robbins Photo
The Northwest Ridge (center). This ridge splits into two separate ridges lower down the mountain: one heads down to the Rock Creek drainage and the other forms the edge of the West Face. The Southwest (Chicken-Out) Ridge is on the right skyline. John Platt Photo
