punchlineUp the gut  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2017


Hwy 143 from Brian Head Resort to Panguitch was shut down due to 50" of snow and blowing wind from the previous 6 days of storms. So we nowshoed from Brian Head Resort to the "Vista" sign, went up the obvious wash, took a right and headed up the SW face, topped out over the cornice and followed the ridge to the hut on top. Not the best weather for a picnic on the top but a fun climb for my 55th birthday!

We had to park on the side of the main highway and cross country to the top. The road to the top was snow covered. We headed up the south ridge to the top. The views are gorgeous! The ridge was fun!

I have been up here a couple of times to mountain bike but made a third visit while in the neighborhood. Good views but not much of a peak

sharpaWindy!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2014


Parked at Rattlesnake Creek trail head, just south of Brian Head Peak road on highway 143. I put on the snowshoes and followed a snowmobile track north to Brian Head Peak road. I followed the road briefly and then left it to get on the south ridge. Snowshoes came off once I gained the ridge. The ridge was snowless due to wind and sun. Hiking was easy most of the way to the summit. It was FREEEZING on the summit. So windy... On the way down I skipped the ridge and snowshoed straight down the south facing slopes.

Was staying overnight in Panguitch on the way to the Grand Canyon for the weekend. Woke up early while family was still asleep and drove up to Brian Head. Beautiful celestial views at 5 am. No moon. I'll have to come back to this one during the day for the earthly views. 11th UT CoHP.

About a 1 hour drive (34 miles) from Panguitch, Ut.

Half our group stopped a half mile into the road and attacked the peak as the crow flies. Unfortunately, my wife had some blisters so we walked the road up. The backcountry riding/skiing on that backside would be STELLAR in the winter.

Embarrassingly easy drive up. Made better with a side trip to Sidney Peaks at sunset. Trip Report

EJBeanHiked from Thunder Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1981


I was on staff at Thunder Ridge scout camp in the early 80's. Since I lead hikes at a scout camp near the Tetons, they asked me to be trailmaster, and to find some good hikes for scouts. The main one I came up with was the hike from Thunder Ridge to Brian's Head. It was a good hike, but some scouts refused to return once they discovered a road at the top - "send our scout master in his truck".

Drove most of the way until blocked by snow near the top. Hiked the remaining 200 vertical feet in flip flops. Nice views of Cedar Breaks.

The road was blocked by 2-3' of snow about .6 miles from the top, but it was easy to walk on the bare ridge.
