Talk about a crazy trail. The trail is still there for the most part, it kinda disappears as you approach the ridgeline. But it's almost entirely overgrown in some areas. Bring a machete or some clippers if you're going this way

BKiser90Up Deer Creek, Down the South Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2017


Long, hot slog up to Box Elder. The start of the ridge after the trail was especially strenuous, but my friend and I made good time. Beautiful views from the top and a thunderstorm rolled in over the American Fork Twins when we reached the summit. Plenty of snow still visible on Timpanogos. Great peak for getting away from crowds!

edgeTedious but Fun  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 8, 2014


Climbed up Trail 43 up Deer Creek. Made good time up until the snow on the ridge. I had no winter gear so it took 3 hours from the ridge to the top of Box Elder. I kept sliding back down the snow even though it was only 1-3 feet deep. That part was horrible. Very cold on the summit. The views were amazing, though! Going back down was really fun. Slid down from the top to the pass in 20-30 minutes. Very fun trip on the way down, if not a bit boring coming down the trail. Also did Silver Lake Peak on a previous hike.

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2014


I went up Phelps Canyon to the summit then north across the ridge to the sub-peaks near White Baldy (above Silver Lake), returning to the trailhead via the Dry Creek trail. Some strong winds along the ridge but otherwise, a perfect day. Beautiful views all the way around.

ApexrockNorth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 26, 2014


What a slog! Gaining the North Ridge in winter conditions is exhausting. I spent just about the entire hike post-holing anywhere from 6 inches to 4 feet. This was with snowshoes on and a 5 A.M. start! Can't wait to try out the cirque once spring rolls around.

We enjoyed this one! We underestimated the 1 foot of snow and steep terrain, should have brought the crampons and gators. The wind, clouds, and snow were brutal on top, but all 3 made for quite the adventure! We even followed elk tracks to navigate through a portion of the steep pine section.

Box Elder has been on my list for about 15 years. I can't believe it took me so long to bag this baby. This one will definitely be added to the rotation. Some of the best views in the Wasatch. With Jun32 and Jennilyn. We just beat the storm. Cold and windy on top. 1:50 to the summit and just over 3 round trip.

Garon CorizFirst Hike After Moving to SLC  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2013

Garon Coriz

A 6.5-hr solo. Underestimated the distance and elevation gain. Basically coming off the couch, the last 0.5 miles on the way down were painful. Losing the trail in the snow within the forest was costly as well. The clouds we a bit menacing but were over Timpanogos.

~11 miles round-trip
~4500 feet of elevation gain

MAeroN-S loop via Dry Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2013
Trip report. Climbed up from Alpine via the S Ridge, enjoyed a perfect hour on the summit eating lunch, then descended via the north ridge. Lost the trail where the ridge splits above the forested slope and ended up bushwhacking (not bad) our way down to the grassy bench below where we found a sweet shortcut back to Dry Creek

The day before this trip I did like 100 lunges at crossfit not a good idea at all so I was so sore ant this was my first time carrying crampons and ice axe so I didnt make it to the summit just to the saddle, still was a good experience I even got a lesson for self arrest from my experienced friend ;)

Hiked up the road from the lake, then up the trail. Dropped straight off the east side for a sweet glissade, worth it despite some crappy bushwhacking below. Note that the apparent cliff band has a narrow couloir cutting through. Mini-trip report.

Excellent views from the top of many Wasatch Peaks. The climb up is not near so interesting as one expects looking at the peak from the North, where it resembles a blown-open volcano.

PrinceOfNorwayHappy Halloween on Box Elder  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 29, 2011


I started out on the Deer Creek trail head and probably took some wrong turns as I ended up north of the mountain. I ended up traversing the saddle and going up the north ridge to the summit. I was dressed as a mountaineer for Halloween. Was probably a good thing since I was on the mountain. There was plenty of snow on the east and north facing slopes with a cornice already formed on the summit ridge. It was very cold on top, or I'm not used to it yet. Probably 20 degrees with the fierce wind. I even saw 3 moose!
