edgeKessler Peak  Sucess!


Climbed up from the Doughnut Falls area and up to Carbonate Pass. No trail up to the pass. Very annoying. Views from the top were great! Scrambling was tricky if you stay directly on the ridge. Probably class 4.

06/11 - Morning solo hike, up and down in less than 3 hours. The trail was absolutely beautiful and full of wildlife! I love walking through fields of wildflowers, even if it causes my allergies to go into hyper-drive.

07/08/12 - Hike with Pauline.

08/03/13 - Hike with Sage.

9/15/2012 I have been meaning to climb this peak for some time. I climbed it from the North Route, and it certainly lived up to the hype. There were endless amounts of people at the trailhead and on the road that was heading to Doughnut Falls but once I got to the trail heading up Kessler I didn't see another person. The views from the top were amazing.

First ascent of Kessler. Loved the hike and the solitude. Probably going to be one of my new training peaks. I like the fact that it's quick and gets you above 10,000'. I guess I'll head out...

Woo - Kessler is a short, steep bitch! Explored the mountain to the South along the ridge. Great views!

One of my favorite hikes in the Wasatch. Great forest up high. No pointless switchbacks. A straight forward trail the way it should be like European trails. Took North Route. Summit Ridge looks like it would be a good scramble.

Needs some brushing first half mile, of course it rained the night before so I was quite wet. Map and pictures at http://www.willhiteweb.com/big_cottonwood_canyon/kessler_peak/wasatch_335.htm

vanman798Up and Down Argenta  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2010


Skinned up the slide path on the north side of the mountain known as Argenta. Gained the ridge then followed it east to the peak. From the peak followed the ridge north to the shoot that goes through the cliff bands, skied that. Skinned back up to the ridge and skied back to the road. It took less than 2 hours to summit compared to last year (when we were putting in the skin track) it took 3 hours 20 minutes to reach the ridge.

Hiked with a good friend of mine. Near the peak and off the trail stepped on a nest of bugs that stung my face; made it to the top with a migraine. Almost didn't want to continue, but realized how stupid that would have been once I made it. My friend definitely made everything better though. Two thumbs up, I'd do it again :)

Date Climbed: Dec 1, 2008


Nice short, steep hike. I've been here 21 times. I've taken the north route all times but one when I hiked up the old Argenta trail. In the summer there is always a ton of people headed to donut falls but I almost never run into anyone on the trail to Kessler. Great views of the Cottonwood Ridge.

12/01/08 Lots of snow. Personal worst time of 3:25 to the summit.
09/30/08 Finally found geocache near summit. (After owner moved it to an easier location and told me exactly where it was.)
08/19/08 Personal best time of 1:08 to the summit.
08/12/08, 07/24/08
10/01/07 Another unsuccessful search for summit geocache.
09/25/07 Unsuccessful search for summit geocache.
08/04/07 Hiked up Argenta trail with Joyce and down north route. Found 2 of MOCKBA's geocaches.
04/27/07, 11/10/05, 07/01/04, 06/26/04, 06/20/04, 06/15/04, 05/20/04, 06/30/03, 09/19/02, 08/10/02, 07/11/00, 10/02/99, around 1990.
