Rocky AlpsSouth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2017

Rocky Alps

Got a little sidetracked at the trailhead, but made a quick correction and went up the steep talus field to the ridge. Going up wasn't too bad, but going back down later was a bit more difficult to do without knocking rocks loose. Once on the ridge, the views were awesome, with solid scrambling all the way to the top. I didn't feel the difficulty ever exceeded class 3 (we circled around to ascend the summit from the southeast side). See "A Taste of the High Uintas" trip report for details.

Short but steep. The most difficult part was getting to the main ridge that connects Hayden and Aggasiz. It was steep and loose on the way up (and down). Once on the ridge, it was really fun all the way to the summit. The summit provided really nice views of Uinta lakes and peaks.

Ran into a couple of rock climbers on the way down, they were taking a break after doing the wall. Ran into another couple at the notch from the standard route, then three more backpackers making their way into the basin from the ridgeline. The storms mostly kept away, didn't stick around to see if it stayed that way

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2016


From Hayden Pass along with Agassiz. I first went up Agassiz and then did the fun traverse to Hayden. Got off route on the final ascent to the summit and found myself climbing some low class 5 stuff. Made it up, but a little unnerving being by myself. On the way down I picked up some cairns and the descent was a more mild class 3/4. These are a fun couple peaks to pair together with easy access from the Mirror Lake Highway.

Climbed with mr "edge" below me (Bence). His log sums it up better than mine did but worth the effort!

For some reason we tried getting up the final summit block from the west which is class 5 and not doable without rope for mortals but after 3hrs of trying every chute we decided to go right (east) and that's how you get to the summit. Beautiful views but cold winds.

Went up the second gully to the right of Iron Hayden Wall - 3rd class staircase all the way up to the south end of the rocky section of the ridge. Went up the 5th class variation and removed the rope dangling there. I chose to help Leave No Trace, especially when the 3rd class route is around the corner. Lost my climbing buddy, Margaret, on the way down as she waited for me to complete the route. Found her after descending all the way to the saddle. Luckily there were no storms. What a day!
Peak #150 as well!

Nice morning scramble. I ascended via the 10 foot crack described by the original author. Then made the easy scramble up the ridge veering right of the summit block to hit a class 3 gully marked by cairns. With the exception of the 10 foot crack to gain the ridge (which can be avoided by heading straight up the loose talus to the notch), this route is Class 3

Great day on Hayden. Started cloudy but broke to sun once on the saddle between Hayden and Agassiz. Met some friendly mountain goats near the summit as well.

First climbed up Hayden, then traversed the ridge to East Hayden. Descended into the basin and across to Agassiz before returning to the car. RT was a little more than 8 hours.

With a near-perfect weather forecast, we got an alpine start of 11:02 AM. There is somewhat of a trail now branching to the left/east immediately after the start of the Highline Trail, but it's a bit intermittent. The county line ridge is a good route - we ascended that way - but we made the mistake of being lazy or impatient and came down the gully to the north: very nasty.

I was able to tag along on this one and go up a southwest couloir up to the south ridge and then to Hayden Peak. A ton of snow in July! It was an amazing time and a great experience.

7/05/11- Did this bad boy from the Mirror Lake Highway. We were on snow the entire way until we hit the Ridge. There was SOOO much snow! The Rock is amazing here. It took us 4 hrs up and down.

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2009


Ran/Scrambled up from Ryder and McPheter where we were camped. Tough run and some pretty hairy sections on the way up but totally awesome. All alone on top of course. Injured my foot pretty bad before the trip and used a trekking pole to keep pressure off of it but it was shot on the way down so we ended up taking a very steep and somewhat dangerous 1,000 foot glissade right down a shoot toward Ryder lake. Scary and VERY FUN.
