With Mountaingazelle from SP. Did Raymond and then over to GN. Were not quite sure of the actual summit at first, but we finally made it. Awesome day!

One of the finest hikes in the Wasatch. First climbed in 1963 and never disappointed during the many times since.

I climbed Gobblers Knob with Scott (climb14ers) after climbing Mount Raymond. The weather was nice and there weren't many people out hiking. Good trail and great view from the summit.

This was a quite long hike, totalling about 7 to 8 hours for me. The trail went through forest and land filled with so much wildflowers for anyone who loves to try and guess what they are called. At Baker's Pass, I was surprised to see a lone Sego Lily out of nowhere.

BignickRoute Climbed: Alexander Basin Date Climbed: August 24 01  Sucess!


I have been on this peak three times. The first and third, I took the conventional Alexander Basin route and the second time to add a new twist I climbed directly up to the ridge west of the meadow and followed the ridge south to the summit. Attaining the ridge was some of the steepest hiking I have done without a trail on dirt and somewhat loose rock. The third time I did this in late Fall of '04 we continued on to Mt. Raymond, decending at Baker Pass and the Baker Spring trail loop back to the Alexander Basin trail. Lots of elevation gained and lost on this one. The fall colors were electrifying and the temperature very pleasent.

The summit with the best name in the Wasatch.

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Soleus Ridge Date Climbed: January 29th, 2005  Sucess!


I climbed this with Joe Bullough last Saturday, heading up a steep ridge I dubbed Soleus Ridge due to the excessive strain the hill put on our calves. My inclinometer measures much of the ridge to be 40 degrees steep. After summiting on fine styrofoam snow, we continued over to Mt Raymond and back down to Butler Fork in time for me to catch a Sundance Movie - all in all a perfect day.

My favorite trip is to go up Bowman in the spring, then glissade down Alexander's, then take the cutoff trail back to Bowman...The ridge to Dog Lake isn't bad either...

ecallahanRoute Climbed: Alexander Basin Trailhead Date Climbed: 19 June 2004  Sucess!


Added an extra 5+ miles to the hike by not realizing beforehand that the gate to the trailhead is closed until July 1st. Had to find our own route as the trail became covered in snow. Very green and flowers all around. Cool view of Mt. Raymond from the top. Took the loop back down.

Nice hike with a sustained steep trail. Not technical in the least bit, but good for exercise and getting outside.

I went on to climb Mt Raymond via the North East Ridge.

This is a great after work hike by any approach. I climb this every year for exercise. I have approached by Porter Fork, Butler Fork and Baker Pass, Butler Fork and Dog's Lake approach and Alexander Basin. I would have to say my favorite is the Alexander Basin approach. Gobbler's is possible in winter by any of the aforementioned approaches.

Another nice moderate Wasatch peak. Steep from Baker Pass, but not as hard as going to Raymond. Alexander Basin route done in 2004 was outstanding, best route yet on this peak.

Several times. Last time was in November 11 1995 via Butler Fork.

Bowman Fork may be the most scenic route.

I hiked this in preparation for Lone Peak. It's a nice hike, not too difficult, though the last stretch from Baker Pass up to the summit is pretty steep and rocky. There are great views all around. On the way down I stopped off at Circle All Peak. That's the 8,707 foot point on the ridge separating Butler Fork and Mill A Gulch, and is a nice hike in itself.
