Scott Wesemann

Been on my list for almost 20 years. Went up from Big Johns Flat. Parked the car about a mile further and found a route up the ridge. Incredible!

vanman798After Belknap  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2017


I had walked from Poison Spider Creek (road was gated shut) and climbed Belknap. On the return I followed the road to the radio tower, then down to Mud lake where an old gated closed road appeared. I followed the old road for awhile then b-lined to the peak, which involved going around a few drainages. Took about 2 hours from Belknap FR 123 trailhead to summit of Delano, and maybe 45 mins to descent to my truck.

Hiked Delano and Mine Camp since I was camped relatively close at Yuba State Park. I wrote up a trip report for both here: http://www.summitpost.org/delano-and-mine-camp-peaks/980234

Went up looking for some summer snow to ski! Found a great 1000 foot line departing from just below the summit!

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2015


I had driven by this peak several times over the years on the way to more enticing mountains but this peak is too tall and prominent to ignore. A trip to Zion got me within striking distance, so I drove up and dashed up the trail. There is now a huge sign on top which is really sort of ridiculous. The hiking at least on a summer or fall day is trivial. As others have noted, some of the slightly lower peaks in the Tushars appear to be more interesting but I was short on time and had to get back to Zion. Certainly very nice views and some fall color.

Not difficult hike. The first half of the trail looks like you are following the tire treads of a jeep. There are a few steep walking sections. The ground is scattered with somewhat large rocks, so hiking down left me fearful of turning an ankle.

Super pretty! You can see well into Capitol Reef from the summit. Such a gentle giant.

There's a new trailhead sign passed Big John Flat that takes you directly up the ridge. It took our small group a little more than an hour to reach the summit from this trailhead. We saw bambies and goats up there and the weather was really good for July. Gorgeous views all around from the summit. I would love to ski down this thing in winter.

Parked on the road between Griffith and Poison Creeks. Took the ridge all the way up, then continued on to Holly. The only mountain goats we saw were really far away. This part of Utah is so scenic.

Date Climbed: May 2, 2014


I hiked up Big John Flat road from the lower gate. Above 9700' the road was completely covered in snow. Followed the road to Griffith Creek where I cut up to the ridge. Lots of snow in the meadows and on the slopes but not much on the ridge. Spectacular scenery. The only wildlife I saw today was a porcupine.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2013


9/24/2013 From Big John Flats I drove up the dirt road to about 11,200 feet before finding a good place to park. From there I headed up and over the ridge and worked my way over to Mount Belknap. From Belknap I returned to the section of ridge above my car and headed up to Delano Peak. Unbelievable country, hiking across the tundra towards Delano Peak was a very drastic change to the talus laden ridges and slopes leading to Mount Belknap. Perfectly clear day with outstanding views. The fall colors, looking down canyon, were some of the best I've seen.

The lower gates were locked because of lingering snow above 10,000', so this came in at roughly 13 miles. It was pleasant, though, and nowhere was snow really an obstacle. We (Lorraine and I) saw elk, deer, and mountain goats while out on the mountain.

Another trip up Bullion Creek. It may be the high point, but Belknap and Baldy are much nicer-looking. Trip report.

Nice stroll through the alpine tundra. A few dozen mountain goats were grazing on one of the northern saddles. The whole area looks remarkably unlike any other area in Utah that I've seen.

strongbadreggieHurricane force winter winds!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 12, 2011


Climbed from Big John Flat road close to Poison Creek. The bottom half of the mountain was a balmy 20 degrees. Towards the top, the winds picked up to about 70 miles per hour, and the temperature plummeted to about -5 degrees. I have no idea what the windchill would have been, probably -20. Having lived through 3 Florida hurricanes, I know the winds up there were probably Hurricane 1 or 2. Only downside, it wasn't 75 degrees with warm tropical rains!

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2010


One of the greatest days in the mountains I have ever had. From a campsite on the Lake Stream Rd, hiked up with a friend to the TH (snow blocked our passage by car), stashed a few cans of beer in the snow, then proceeded over Holly to Delano, then on the ridge east all the way to Brigham, then back on the trail at the eastern base of the mtns back to the beer stash and then campsite.
