harborBlack Frary Friday  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 28, 2014


Summited with 2 of my brothers right at sunset. We had the warmest Thanksgiving in 70+ years (so I was told). Had to take advantage of great weather and get a peak in. The parking lot was nearly full. Very popular hike if the weather is nice. Will have to come back and take the scramble route next time.

Excellent views of the Wasatch and Oquirrh mountains. Pretty good rest day hike. Next time I'll try the scramble route. No wildlife on the trail today.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2013


Unsuccessful day for me. Was trying to break in some newer approach shoes and ended up with a large blister on the back of my right heel. Luckily it didn't stop me from summit into Grand Teton the next weekend. Will definitely have to make it back to Frary this summer.

Took my 7 year old son up to the peak for father and son bonding time. He did very well and this route was a good "get back into hiking shape" trip for me. I'll be doing trip report soon. Will be going back soon too. The last 0.08th of a mile was tuff!! Great views, left a mini log book on top with a sharpie. If you get up there sign it and snap a pic for me

Hiked this with the wife, parents, brother, etc. Mom had a very hard time getting off the mountains, as she had knee issues. I don't remember much else, but Kadee said I had to sign the log, and one must do what Kadee says. ;)

I was terrified the last 100 or so feet of vertical. Kadee assures me it wasn't that bad. At least it was a beautiful day!

After trying unsuccessfully to summit Frary with my daughter on my shoulders back in November, I was excited to get back to it. Coming off of Mount Olympus, an ass-kicker of a hike (for me, at least), I expected Frary to be a breeze -- and it wasn't! That last 0.08 miles, from the weather station to the summit along the down-then-back-up trail, is pretty hairy in the snow. Without spikes and poles, I might well have turned back at that point. As it was, I took it slow and steady on the way up, and did portions of it on my butt on the way down.

With a heavy inversion in the valley, it was nice to get up above the guck, particularly on such a clear, crisp day. I met three other folks, all very nice, at the weather station and we did the last bit together. This was only the second time since I started peakbagging that I wasn't alone on the summit (the first was Dooly Knob with my daughter), and it was a different feeling.

The 360 degree view from the top is stellar even with an inversion; I can only imagine how cool it would be without it. Well worth the hike!

One of my favorite things about mountains is how they reveal themselves to you as you approach them: their folds seem to unfurl, their flanks take on a different profile depending on where you see them from, and the light catches them in different ways. Frary Peak, though fairly low in elevation, is fantastic for that.

The Frary Peak trailhead is closed in the winter, adding 0.6 miles RT to the route (as you have to walk from the parking lot by the road up the trailhead).

10/30/2013 Great hike up to Frary Peak, even under some cold, stormy weather. We first made the slight detour up to Dooly Knob, then on to Stringham Peak, and staying true to the ridge onto Frary Peak. Fun scrambling staying on the ridge above the trail to the summit.

Couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit the island for free due to the federal shutdown. Hiked to the top of Frary Peak and then over to Red Rocks and Bamberger Hill. On the way back, went to Stringham Peak and Dooly Knob.

I missed island life and the smell of salt water, so that dude who signed the climber's log below (some guy from Utah... UtahGuy? him...) took me island traipsing. BISON! A+, Antelope Island.

Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2013


Absolutely Spectacular. This was my second time to this summit and I can't speak highly of it enough during this time of year. March is gorgeous on the island. It feels so green and with all the water around it is very reminiscing of Ireland. Jagged cliffs, green grasses, patches of snow. The final bit to the summit was a bit tough cause the snow and slick spots, but did it and worth it all.

Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2013


Got there at 630am, had to wait for the gate to open at 7am. Very windy all day. Views were great. Forecast said rain/snow showers but it was a bluebird day, just windy. The trail to bypass the scrambling looked covered in snow and not very good option, so we climbed across the ridge. Made it interesting. Car to car in 4hr 15min. Nice hike.

It was a nice peaceful afternoon. The weather was perfect for this hike. It had some very interesting surroundings and the trail was well maintained. My favorite part of the hike was the last .5 miles of the trip to the top. I really enjoyed the rock scramble to the end.

Date Climbed: May 28, 2012


Our family has had a tradition of hiking every memorial day. Not that we aren't patriotic, but I always thought memorial day meant, the kick off to hiking season. This year I decided to do frary on antelope island. It was the perfect kick off to the hiking season. Much love to the men and women who serve and protect our freedom to enjoy these mountains.

Good hike for fit families. Difficulty level increases near the top. Just enough to make it worth the effort. Take binoculars.

Took the main trail. Lost the trail near the top in the snow. Nothing a little scrambling couldn't fix. Beautiful view and had a visit from a bighorn sheep near the summit.

This is a unique mountain, with good views of the Wasatch and several West desert mountain ranges.
