Skinned up from Alta, skied down into Days, and then skinned up to the higher point of 10,651 ft at N 40.60493 W 111.64448. Basically reversed the route to get back to Alta.

byatesAll year round peak  Sucess!


Rather disturbed by the thought of a ski lift to the top, Usually ski it a couple of times per season, I like to hike the Ridge from Flag to Prince of Wales Mine in Early July, the approach up Toledo and the Ridge has some of the best early Wildflowers.

GahugafugaW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2008


Climbed over Flagstaff to UN 10561 after lingering snow forced me to bail off my plans for Superior and Monte Cristo. The ridge was a great scramble although every hand and foothold needed to be tested due to loose rock.

ZeeJayA snowy, white-out kind of day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2008


Climbed both Flagstaff and 10561 for the 20th time today. It was snowing and you couldn't see very far. But, the fresh snow made for a great glissade down. Who would have thought there'd be so much snow at the end of May!

Moogie737Superior Ridge climb and ridge scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2007


This peak (my 2nd time at the summit) was only part of a horseshoe ridge scramble from the bottom of south Superior ridge east and around over Devil's Castle, Sugarloaf and Mt. Baldy to the Snowbird tram. That, my friends, is one long hike! Take lots of water and be prepared for 12 hours minimum.

Nice morning hike to the top of flagstaff with Matt. Up the south facing slope and down the ridge to Cardiff Pass.

Matthew Van Horn

Started the trail at the Alta guard station about 4:25 AM and headed up the south slope. About 70 minutes to the peak. I was with Justin A. (Gutloaf), and we continued on to the two higher points along the R & B ridge, then instead of going back down the south slope, wewent west on the ridge toward Superior, and then down from Cardiff Pass. 3 hours round trip, and back home in time to shower, eat, hug my babies, and get to work by 9.

mountaingazelleFlagstaff Mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2005


South Slopes: (August 28, 2005) - Short and Steep. Great views from the top. I continued traversing the ridge to Honeycomb Cliffs and hiked down Grizzly Gulch.

West Ridge: (September 14, 2008) - Hiked from Cardiff Pass up the west ridge. Fun scrambling on this route. Then I continued to 10,561 and traversed Reed and Benson Ridge. I hiked down Cardiff Fork. Few people explore this ridge but I did see a few mountain goats.

Ryan Borzea

What class rating would you say the ridge between flagstaff and honeycomb is (summer)? Trail or scrambling?

Great peak for skiing. Avalanche danger is much less severe than the routes coming off of Mount Superior. The view are okay from this peak, I probably would only venture this summit for skiing.

Fun class 3 scramble, and a very short route - great for an afternoon scramble

MrWasatchRoute Climbed: South slopes from Alta; North ridge from Days Fork. Date Climbed: Many  Sucess!


After several ascents from the Alta side, I climbed Flagstaff and it's higher north neighbor (10,561') via Days Fork. The ridge between the peaks involves a little scrambling. Great views.
