|Almost completely snow-free to Enniss Peak, then almost completely snow to the summit. A nice climb, which I would probably do often if I had the misfortune to live near Salt Lake. Trip report.|

|Around this date. Been a while. Went with the Wasatch Mountain Club so as not to get lost. One of my first great ideas when I moved to Utah was to hike Lone Peak solo without a map or any water. Coming from AZ I assumed I could handle any heat and had a lot of desert hiking under my belt, but I have become wiser after that day. And also tougher. Surprising so many make it up there as so many get lost, but a grand summit to be certain and one I'd like to go up and camp near the cirque of one spring when there is still snowmelt to collect and drink. Very dry in late summer. Go early.|

1/26/2013 With WMC. 8 people made the summit. It would have been a perfect day except that I spilled 32oz of Coke in my car on the way to the TH.
2/4/2012 With WMC including SPers Moogie737, Phenom, Mooner, Lubos, and Matthew Van Horn. Great group, great conditions, beautiful weather.
2/12/2011 With WMC. At the base of the big bad rock the snow was hollow and Dave made a hole, first unintentionally, then intentionally to get down to the crawl space to the east.
4/27/2010 Via Big Willow. Christine and I slithered. Dave and Moogie737 jumped. Conditions were great except for the nuking winds. But by some miracle they were calm on the most difficult part of the ridge.
3/12/2010 I loved the belly crawl under the overhang of the big, bad rock. Perfect day.
2/21/2009 With Dmitry, Joe, Michael, Dave, Grizz, Shelly, and Lee. A simply gorgeous day. Not windy at all. Warm but not uncomfortably so.
1/26/2008 With the WMC and summitposters. Not bad except for the big bad rock which required a big jump down and assistance up.
9/8/2007 Via Cherry Canyon Logging Trail after a 4 year absence.
9/6/2003 With WMC, led by Mohammed. Went up Big Willow and headed for the notch just S of 10561. This was not a good place to be with 12 people as the ones in the front were sending rocks down on those below. Went through the notch and traversed S a short distance to a gully that was followed to the main ridge and on to the summit. On the way down, we descended the scree slope into Big Willow Canyon. I put my hand out for balance at one point and that was enough to dislodge a large rock onto the back of my head. It knocked me over and I did a 360 but was able to hike out. Initially, I thought I should drive myself to the ER right away. Then I decided to go home and get my insurance info first. But, once I was home I figured I might as well eat and then figured I might as well take a shower, but I didn't want to mess with my head which was all bandaged up, so I didn't wash my hair. I should have because they had to do it at the hospital because I had so much blood matted in it they couldn't get through to my scalp. Also, I should note that at the hospital they separated me from my husband and grilled me to determine whether or not I was a battered wife.
8/31/2002 From Alpine. Also did Upper Bells Peak.
5/19/2001 From Alpine with MM.
10/7/2000 From Alpine with MM. Also did Upper Bells Peak.
11/23/1999 From Alpine with MM. Also did Upper Bells Peak. An awkward amound of snow.
7/17/1999 Via Draper Ridge Trail with lesdubois. It was clear on the way up, but clouds rolled in as we were descending and we were completely fogged in. Followed the wrong set of cairns and since some people would rather die than backtrack ended up doing a horrible 2 hour plus bushwhack to get to the Jacobs Ladder Trail which we followed back.

|You can see your vehicle for miles coming down. So close.... yet so far away.|

8/10/2009 Jacob's Ladder to Outlaw Cabin to Lone Peak
3/13/2009 A perfect day--there was no wind! Not even on Draper Ridge. I could have spent the entire day in short s and a t-shirt it was so pleasant up there. I climbed with Scott Wesemann by way of the Cherry Canyon trail, then connect with Draper Ridge, then through Cowboy Camp and the cirque. I was successful in summiting. This was making right the "unfinished business" from January when a group of us came oh-so-close to summiting Lone Peak in a blowing white-out.

|My sister and I took the Jacob's Ladder route up and down for a great Labor Day hike. There were plenty of pleasant hikers on the trail, and everyone had an enjoyable time at the summit.|
I expected at least 10-12 hours to do the hike, but we finished in barely over 8. Not bad for a couple of casual hikers!
This hike is a great workout! I'm curious...has anyone worn a BodyBug to measure how many calories you burned? It's got to be an impressive amount of calories, even starting the hike at the higher Jacob's Ladder trail head.

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2012
|Such an amazing mountain, the granite formations were amazing and the scramble to the summit was fun. Definitely my favorite of the seven peaks. If you climb Lone Peak on a hot summer day make sure to bring lots of water and stash water on the trail so you do end up like me and have to descend Jacobs ladder in 100 degrees with no water.|

|June 1, 2012: Went up Big Willow drainage, ended up going to far up the drainage and not turning right after the snowcone. The North ridge at 9,900 - 10,400 was/is sketchy. Beautiful drainage to ascend, lots of nice lines to play with in winter.|
June 22, 2012: Scouted Jacob's ladder trail midweek and did an overnight trip Fri/Sat. Made it up to Outlaw cabin by crossing the small ridge, woke up and got back on Jacob's ladder trail. Ascended NW ridge, lot of exposure but generally a safe route if you're sure-footed. Great views, great challenge. Will plan on basing some ski touring out of the Cabin in winter!

|Dentedvw||Jacob's Ladder sounded so enticing... |
Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2011
|But it wasn't. I would like to thank my friend Robert for making sure we did this section in total darkness, at 2:30am, so that I couldn't see how long and unappealing this section was. I was considering giving in and heading back, concerned that the entire trip would look like this scrub oak hell when we emerged into a meadow. Which I did not see as much as feel, the open space could literally be felt. We summited about 10:30 am, no record breaking pace to be sure. Someone was up there just finishing scrubbing off some graffiti. In the end, it was all worth it. Until we went back down Jacob's Ladder. In the daylight, it is no better. Buddy had bloody feet, but I escaped with nothing more than tired legs.|

Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2011
|Collapsing rotten sugar snow underneath snowshoes in March. 1/4 mile an hour at the upper cirque. Winter snow conditions must be wind-blasted ribs or sun-baked exposed rocks in late winter for this route to go.|

|Started up through Jacob's Ladder with my good friend Eric (imontop) and another friend. It was a beautiful hike. Trees, water, snow, scrambling and an impressive peak with 650+ foot drops on three of the four sides. Will do it again for sure|

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2011
|Hit the Cherry Canyon Trail around midnight with Daniel and his golden retrievers Belle and Timber. Made it to the summit around 6am, hung out for an hour watching the sunrise, a cold, beautiful experience. Followed the drainage directly below the cirque on the way back, but then Daniel decided to take a bushwhack back to the trail. Not fun. Miraculously found the trail again just below the stream crossing and was back at the car around 11am. An awesome way to end the summer the day before school restarted.|

|l3orecl||Via Cherry Cyn |
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2011
|Started at the Cherry Cyn Trailhead, hiked to the log cabin. Followed a trail behind the cabin to the ridge, dropped down and followed trail markers to the next ridge, made the mistake and descended into the gully then followed it up to the ridge. Easier to stay high above the gully and traverse across to the ridge (what I did on the return trip).|

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2010
|Started up the Jacob's Ladder trail about sunrise. From the cirque, we went south and then back up to the summit. This added some distance but gave us some good views of mountain goats. After our rest at the top, we dropped down into Bell Canyon which looked amazing with its fall colors. Reached the car after dark.|
