Finished off our four peak day with Desolation. Love the views down Big Cottonwood from here. Was tempted to head toward Murdock but decided to turn around and call it a day.

Date Climbed: Jan 3, 2012


I've been on top of this little peak many times, today being about #5 or so. I like the ominous warning sign posted there for skiers, a warning that YOU CAN DIE when plying out-of-bounds areas! Starting a climb at Bear Trap Fork makes this peak a natural to bag before heading to Silver, etc.

Ed FGreat ski touring area  Sucess!

Especially in what's called "west Desolation." Very nice touring area that takes a bit of a hike to get to and usually doesn't draw big crowds.
