4/23/2009 From the MC road/Bowman Fork with Moogie737. My 35th time.

3/7/2008 I started out thinking it was going to take forever since I had to break trail. But, once I hit Circle All Pass there was a nice crust and things went a lot quicker. Nice, beautiful sunny day. My 33rd time to the top. Saw no one.

vanman798Skied East Side  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 5, 2016


March 5, 2016. Snowshoed in from Butler Fork, crossed the first saddle (circle all???), then turned north and up the south running ridge that juts off the peak. Pretty steep, took 4.5 hours to reach the peak. Warm day, too warm for this early in March, and the snow was very soft on the descent.

Jan 16, 2010 - Skinned up from Butlers Fork, over circle all, up to the saddle between Raymond and Gobblers then up to the 10,224 ft peak. Skied down the east side of the 10,224 ft peak, and worked our way back to BCC road.
Nov 28, 2009 - From Mill Creek Canyon

Climbed up via the Bowman Fork trail from Mill Creek Canyon. Enjoyed the views once I reached the saddle between Raymond Peak and Gobblers Knob. Looking south it was great to see the Cottonwood ridge. Interestingly, there was a moose feeding about 10 feet below the peak.

An enjoyable hike on a beautiful day. Met Eric from SLC on the summit and he clued me in to all the peaks I was looking at.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2004


Fun day hike! Beautiful scenery at the top in all directions. The last ten minutes or so to the summit required us hiking in the snow, which wasn't as bad as expected seeing I was in shorts. A good incline at the start, but nothing too hard. A hike I'd definitely do again.

North ridge from Bowman Fork. Skied two laps on the northwest face (summitted both times) in settled (but deep and faceshot-friendly) powder.
Also summer-hiked it with my kid brother back in '02ish.

Did a quick up-and-down hike of Gobblers Knob on a nice September afternoon. Went solo but ran into a chummy bow hunter on the way down.

All by myself on this one. Attempted earlier in the season but had to turn back due to weather. Did not see anyone on this climb and I really enjoyed the solitude. On top of the ridge I saw lady bugs galoure clumped together. I nice day hike. Hope to go back in the spring of 08'and do both Gobblers Knob and Mount Raymond.

This hike is cool because it is much milder than the peaks adjacent to it.

Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2017


Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky and beautiful day. We had to don crampons for the final 1,200' of the ascent. Good snow conditions allowed us to ascend the northwest side of Gobblers and to plunge and glissade nearly straight down the north side. Fifth time on the summit, second winter ascent. Add one more for the 15th of June 2007, so 6 times at the top. Make that seven. 11-20-07. From Butler Fork; no snow to speak of, and that is too bad! 11-27-07 #8 - from Bowman Fork w/ Lana. Icy spots on upper half of trail from Bowman Fork TH. 03-18-08 Ascent #9, with Brent. Tons of snow. Climbed summit ridge from the northwest all the way. 4-08-08 Ascent #10. With Brent, Lana & Dave took our "new" route, breaking trail in one foot of new powder the entire way up. Fantastic cornices were a beautiful surprise for so late in the season. 4+25 up from Bowman Fork TH (on Millcreek Canyon Road). #11 9-2-08 with Anne, Brent & Alex via Bowman Fork. Traces of the season's first snow covered much of the trail above 8,000'. #12 (1-23-08) w/ Brent, combo with a climb of Mt. Raymond. From Butler Fork TH. Wonderful fall day. 2+06 from TH to summit. #13 w/ Brent, from Bowman Fork, n.w. ridge to summit(2+10 trailbreaking in 12" of powder). 3+47 up 2+12 down. #14 with tons of new powder. With Brent, Christine & Dave. 4+12 up 2+07 down. The now-familiar snow route. #15 w/ ZeeJay on 4-23-09 Still plenty of snow on the north-facing slopes and the summit ridges. Snow route, Bowman Fork. Snowshoes the final hour up. Beautiful day. 3+12 up 1+48 down. #16 8-6-09 Solo via Bowman Fork. PB time (1+59)to very windy pass & summit. #17 8-11-09 w/ Dave & Brent, 1st to Mt. Raymond, then Gobblers - yes, a two-fer. #18 Twofer w/ ZeeJay; Gobblers first, then Raymond, only 8" of snow along ridges. #19 1-5-10 Bowman Fork/Terraces rte. W/ Dave. Packed trail for 1+35, then snowshoes in less-than-wonderful conditions (not enough snow). 3+38 up 2+36 down. Cold & windy on top: what else is new? #20 2-4-10 Old winter route, much snow. #21 7-24-10 Via Mill B North and Desolation to Baker Pass; spectacular wild flowers. 2+58 up. #22 7-29-10 W/ Brent via Bowman Fork. Wildflowers in vast profusion. #23 9-7-10 Part of Mill B North Raymond, Gobblers, Raymond trio w/ Brent, Dave and JP Lewis. #24 12-7-10 W/Dave. Via Bowman Fork on microspikes and snowshoes (bagged Mt. Raymond 1st). Winter route down. Beautiful conditions in fine snow. #25 3-15-11 W/ Dave & John Lewis. Bowman Fork snow route. Tons of the white stuff. Windy on the summit ridge - just like winter. :) #26 7-19-11 W/ Dave & Brent via Butler Fork. Did Raymond first. #27 10-1-11 W/ Brent via Bowman Fork. Gorgeous aspen colors. #28 2-9-12 Another two-fer, this one a winter slog. Rotten snow conditions about 50% of the time. Still made it & bagged Raymond, too, all in snowshoes. #29 4-14-12 On a snowy spring day, direct to the summit from the west (sehr steil!). Mit Sonderperson. #30 7-24-12 Showery a.m. climb on rain-slickened trail. Trotzdem schoen. #31 7-28-12 Solo to summit.

S.person. #35 & #36 2-5-13 Using the winter snow route and subsequent approach along the north ridge I hit Gobblers twice whilst sandwiching Mt. Raymond in between via Baker Pass.
