Very beautiful, and almost shocking when you know the cirque is within view of a major city. You can even heard the faint hum of rush hour traffic when standing in the cirque.

Thanks, Scott. Lone Peak has always been one of my favorite mountains in the Wasatch. Everyone can see it from the valley but the cirque is a special place.

I've climbed Lone Peak several times but haven't done any technical routes on it yet. I would like to try the Open Book route. Question Mark Wall is really nice too.

Open Book route was the first climb I did in the Lone Peak area in about 1982. When I was up there a lot of the area reminded me of being in the Wind Rivers Range in Wyo. I have done alot of alpine routes up there on 1000 ft . Ice apline ice 3 and 4. If you have never been to the Wind Rivers I recomend going up to those mountains.

I have been to the Wind Rivers before. I agree with you, Lone Peak Cirque has similiar high granite walls. The Wind Rivers are one of my favorite mountain ranges. I would like to climb there more often.

Thanks! This cirque has many multi-pitch trad climbs rated 5.4 to 5.12. It is a very beautiful place. The approach to get there is a little strenuous though.

Who would want to ski down a perfectly
steep couloir? Probably the same caliber
of person who would want to jump out of
a perfectly good airplane! Hey, I just
answered my own question!!! Sweet.

Most skiers dream about skiing down a perfectly steep couloir. Isn't that what it's all about! The summit ridge of Lone Peak is very exposed so it isn't for the faint-hearted.
