Overview

This is one of the more illusive peaks to summit in Utah yet it always seems to be visible in the distance. Because it is surrounded on all sides by private lands, access is extremely difficult. With it's location close to Park City and all the communication towers on top, you would think this is an easy one.

Getting There

Many determined peakbaggers from around the west have found their way up this 2000+ prominence peak, some with disparaging stories to tell. The local sheriff has been called on climbers before. Surprisingly I had actual permission to do this one so it wasn't a stealth mission for me. In order to preserve access for those peakbaggers who are coming from long distances, I won't be giving out landowner info over the internet for this peak. The info is passed via climbing groups....get to know some of them. I no longer have the phone #s to the landowners so don't ask me.

Red Tape

As said above, the entire mountain is private. Getting permission is wise.
