Date Climbed: Mar 7, 2010
I hiked up Ben Lomond on snowshoes, with good consolidated snow, but poor visibility (complete whiteout at times).

kteichertCoupled with Willard  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2009


Did Willard first, didn't find a registry, very little human activity, and thought I'd have the whole mountain to myself. Then I walked the ridge south to Ben Lomond and found a celebrity! I don't really know why Ben Lomond is so famous, but good gravy! it put Willard to shame! Great views of the Wasatch Mtns south! Steep all the way around. Fantastic peak.

I stopped here for the first time on my way to Willard Peak. There were a lot of mountain goats on this trip. The first I have ever seen. Pretty cool.

A very nice day hiking in this area. Parked at the saddle, did Inspiration Point and Willard Peak, too. I saw several mountain goats at the far south end below Ben Lomond peak.

Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2008


I have lost count of how many times Ive done this peak, beautiful, fun hike. This one time I climbed to Ben Lomond, Willard Peak and Inspiration peak in one day from North Ogden Divide, it made for a very long hard day, I think it was around 24 miles.

Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2009
Wife and I were the only one on the mountain.....Sunday. The peak stares at us all day long as we live in North Ogden. We snowshoed Culter Ridge from the east/North Fork Park. Solid snow all the way up. Put the crampons on on the way down.

seanpeckhamUp Cutler Ridge, down Northeast Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 28, 2009


Great mountain! Sunny day with a breeze in the morning that disappeared after noonish. Snowpack on the ascent mostly frozen solid with some dust on top, which had been moved around by the wind, and was sensitive in the pockets where it had piled up a bit. It made the shoulder too slippery for skinning, so we booted that part, and watched a group zoom past us with ski crampons. There was a giant day-old double-crown wind slab avalanche under Willard Peak. The summit ridge had softened in the sun and become grippy enough for skinning. We shared the summit with several other parties, it was a very unexpected zoo. The northeast face was an awesome descent, and the snow there was finally pretty good (not too crusty under the dust) for most of the way into Cutler Basin. Had a snowmobile encounter after that, fortunately the only one of the day. Got kinda lost at the bottom with Nordic park roads going in circles, and climbed a fence with my skis on to escape.

apachedinoCrazy Cutler Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2008


See Willard entry. Crazy loop starting at Cutler Flats hitting Willard 1st somehow then Ben and then down to Cutler again. Class 4 bushwacking for several sections, but shaved plenty of miles off. Whole loop in 7 hours.

LonePeakFreakWillard Peak and Ben Lomond  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


Managed to get my Maxima about 3 miles up the dirt road from Mantua, then biked up to Willard Basin. Stashed the bike in the trees and climbed Willard Peak, then over to Ben Lomond and back. Total distance just over 20 miles, took about 7.5 hours round trip. The bike ride down from the Basin was worth the effort to take it up earlier in the day.

I forgot to sign the summit register, too busy taking a pick and getting back before my son woke up from his nap in the kid carrier. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah_climbing/willard/ben_lomand_peak_094.htm

One of the most prolific peak along the wasatch front and the hike and trail were extraordinary. It's also a great trail run for the die hards.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007


Hot day but not too bad with an early start. Hit Ben Lomond and then headed over to Willard Peak and then back. It's long, but that trail isn't very steep at all, so it's fast moving.

madsjimSkyline Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 19, 2007


Climbed it from the Skyline trail. It was a nice hike up and it didn't seem to be as long as I thought it would be be, propably 5 hours total to the top. The summit is awesome and is quite prominent.
Eventhough it was nice getting up, it was the worst descent of my life. My feet hurt and I kept rolling my ankle, argghhh! I will not do this trail again, I would take the backside instead.

I climb this every spring from North Fork. I meet people who "cheat" from Skyline drive.

This is a long, but very gradual hike. We did this in mid-June and the final trail to the summit was still completely buried in the snow. We got off the trail and did a scramble to the summit, which was quite fun. Outstanding hike!
