|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Lost River Mountain|
| Elevation:||12078 ft / 3681 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe left at 7:30a.m. and started climing arrived at top of trees at 9:30a.m., The climb becomes significantly steeper once in the gully very loose rocks. We took the righthand side ridge to the top then hiked over the ridge to the actual summit where the marker is. We stayed at the top for about 50 min and then climbed down. The climb down is a lot faster once you get off the ridge into the gully because you can get to the bottom of the gully in about 30 min due to the loose gravel. Very tough climb even though it is shorter than Borah I would say it is more physically demanding.
