ultrajimBen Lomond the hard way  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 8, 2014
I've been wanting to go up the front face of Ben Lomond for years. I, and some friends finally did it a couple weeks ago. We started at the trailhead at the bottom of the North Ogden Canyon, ran the trail to the main ravine on the face and went straight up. Nothing very difficult, lots and lots of bowling ball sized scree that was very loose. We had to be careful to not push any down on people below. There is a small rock scramble just before the summit, but nothing difficult. Usually we run the trail from the North Ogden Divide up to the summit. this was a nice change. Weather wise it was a perfect day, sunny, and cool. A bit of a breeze on top, but not bad at all. Time to climb was about three hours, total time was a bit over five. Here's my Strava of the route we did. http://www.strava.com/activities/216968403

7/18/14 - Hiked with my lovely wife. Most of the trail is scattered with small rocks which get old after 16 miles. :) She's not in a hurry to hike it again anytime soon. Still, a great day!

6/28/13 - First time from N. Ogden Pass. Had a good day. Met up with coworkers at the peak for photos.

Climbed from the divide with my wife. We got a late start so we pushed hard reaching the summit in 3 hours and 13 minutes. Spent about 25 minutes on the summit, just enough time to eat a pb & j and take some pictures. Moderate temperatures and nice breeze kept things comfortable all day. Ran into a big gopher snake below the summit. Great day in the mountains!

sharpavia Cutler Basin trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2014

Lots of snow fields to cross which meant the descent was pretty fun with lots of glissades. The weather was great - 60's, sunny. The route is not too steep and has much more solitude than the Ogden Divide route. After resting for a bit on the summit, I went over to Willard and hiked that. Lots of mountain goats on Willard.

Brent and I bagged this one along with Willard Peak via North Ogden Canyon. There's gotta be a shorter route. It was a beautiful hike with views to die for.

With Jun32 and Jennilyn. We ran about 95% to the top of BL and then power hiked the final push. The sun was just coming out and the views were outstanding. We also ran over and tagged Willard as well and then went back the way we came. We saw 3 Mt. goats and 3 moose up close. What a fantastic route. Total time round trip was 4:30ish.

I remember this one fondly and need to get back. A long gentle approach should be good in any season, and I think this would make a good back country ski. Pack a lunch and plenty of water and make an easy day of it.

The hike took about 6 hours in each direction. Snow shoed most of the way, switched to crampons on the final summit push. Freezing temps and lots of lots of snow!

Drove up to Inspiration point, 9,422 ft, then wandered over to Willard Peak, 9,764 ft, and continued on to Ben Lomond, 9,712 ft. Ascending Willard I spoted one goat, coming down we spoted a herd of 12, which ran away, but when we reached them again there was at least 25 or 30 of them. I have never seen that many mountian goats at once. On the drive out we saw three mooses in Perry Reservoir. I can understand why "goat man" was hanging out in the area a few months ago.

Solo from N Fork park. That night's evening news reported on the "Goat Man Sighting" on Ben Lomand. I did not see any goats; animals or humans with goat costumes. Great day, fantastic weather. Only saw one other hiker.

Drove to Inspiration Point and walked over to Willard Peak. Couldn't find a great route to the top, but made it, and then walked over to Ben Lomond, which was much easier to summit. Great views. First time on Willard and Ben.

Hiked up from North Fork Park up to Ben Lomond. What a great hike for wildflowers. I would suggest going in June however.

Easy drive to Inspiration Point - good road, high clearance a must, 4WD not required. I read that the road was very rough but it was not. Daughter, Son, a friend and the dog ridge climbed from Inspiration toward Willard Peak. Continued on to Ben Lomond for lunch. Saw several Mt Goats. Signed the log. Took the lower trail below Willard back to IP. Saw a big Rattle Snake below Willard. About 5 miles round trip.
