runbyu1Don't go down the wrong way!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2010


2nd Attempt, almost as disastrous as the first although we summitted this time! Very warm day for October. Such a cool mountain. We ran/scrambled up from Jacob's ladder in 2 1/2 hours. Getting down was another story as we wanted to go down the Bear Canyon route---somehow we missed it (to the North) and after 3 hours of bushwacking and downclimbing some crazy crap we finally ended up in Sandy (Saw Mill trail) at a Bonneville Shoreline Trailhead. The others had had enough so Danny Moody and I (Golden) ran back on the BST to the car we had in Draper at the Orson Smith Trailhead. Pretty awesome but I would love to actually have a successfully planned trip on this mountain! If anyone knows exactly what Canyon we came down to come out at the "Saw Mill Trail" I'd love to know---please contact me.

Joseph BulloughVarious ascents  Sucess!

Joseph Bullough

Climbed 14 times:

10/16/10 - First peak of the Hematoma Quad with Jake and Matt.

3/12/10 - A bluebird day. Did a crawl to bypass one of the summit ridge rocks. It wasn't pretty but it worked.

2/20/09 - One of the nicest weather days I've ever had up there. Lots of snow on the summit - only room for one at a time.

10/18/08 - Climbed with Robert and Matt. Our original plan was to climb via the Orson Smith TH / Cherry Canyon trail, but there was a lot of snow on the upper mountain so we contoured over to Draper Ridge to complete the hike. Super nice day.

08/02/08 - Climbed from Bells Canyon with Robert. Peak #1 of the Hematoma Quad.

04/26/08: First ascent via Big Willow route. Celebrated Grizz's 100th ascent of the peak.

01/20/07: Winter ascent with the Wasatch Mountain Club via Cherry Canyon. Skies were totally clear entering the cirque but deteriorated to near-whiteout conditions on the summit, and snowed during the entire descent. Trip Report.

07/29/06 - Solo hike via Bells Canyon. Climbed North Thunder first, then traversed over South Thunder and Bighorn to Lone. Descended by backtracking to the Lone/Bighorn saddle, then dropped back into Bells Canyon.

01/22/06 - First winter ascent of the peak with the Wasatch Mountain Club, via Cherry Canyon/Draper Ridge. Low lying clouds down low, but crystal clear skies from the cirque on up. Beautiful day. Trip Report.

10/16/04 - Final peak of the day, after ascending Coalpit Gulch to North Thunder Mountain, then making the traverse to South Thunder and Bighorn. Descended via Cherry Canyon.

08/07/04 - Climbed solo via Cherry Canyon, then traversed over Bighorn, South Thunder, Chipman, and finished with the Pfeifferhorn. I began the hike with delusions of going all the way to Snowbird, but I wimped out upon reaching the Pfeifferhorn and descended down Red Pine Canyon.

07/01/04 - Climbed solo via Cherry Canyon, a much more pleasant route than my two previous ascents.

08/23/03 - via Draper Ridge (yuck). Badly overgrown and eroded trail down low, but we miraculously managed to stay on route.

09/03/00 - First ascent of the peak, via Jacob's Ladder. Got off route early but eventually got back on the trail. Nice to finally get on top after thinking about it for many years.

Long hike from the American Fork side. Really beautiful. Climbed Vertical Smile 5.10a with friends to the summit! Even though the hike is a brute the basin at the top is incredible.

kteichertNew Favorite Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2009


Summitted Lone Peak on a perfect Saturday afternoon. The weather was 76?F at 5:30 am when we began via Jacob's Ladder, and I feared that it would be a hot one. However clouds kept us cool throughout the hike and at the summit, I was neither hot nor cold. It was a beautiful day. I double fisted a water bottle and gatorade to make sure that I had plenty of liquid. The Gatorade was a sweet reward at the summit, and I gave half my water to Davy Crockett, a.k.a. "self-pronounced ultra marathoner". So thanks Davy for not bringing enough for yourself to help me lighten my load. I also still had a half-bladder full of water in my camelbak upon completion, so clearly, if the weather cooperates, I won't need to double fist for bloody knuckles on the rock scrambling the next time.

What a great day for Lone Peak! We were so glad that we hit the trailhead around 530am, and while Jacob's Ladder is hideous, it definitely seems to be the fastest route. We made it up to the summit and back in just under 8 hours. The last 1/4 mile of rock scrambling to the top was my favorite part. We had the summit to ourselves for about half an hour. The views were amazing! It'll be a hike I'll do again, but next time I'd like to try to climb Lone Peak via Bells Canyon.

Had a great time. Jacob's ladder lived up to it's reputation and the summit ridge too. I love the adrenalin at the top! Will definitely do this again.

hatchmtUp via Jacobs, Down via Big Willow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009
Quite a lovely hike up Jacobs Ladder approach. Took the hike pretty slow but made it to the summit at around 2:00pm. Going down through Little/Big Willow may have been a mistake (more bushwhacking than expected), but overall a splendid trip. Glad to finally make it -- this mountain has taunted me for many years. Went with Ammon Hatch

Difficult climb. Tougher than I expected. We did the Jacob's Ladder TH route and I was dying the first few miles. Hit a second wind at the cirque and took a nap on the summit. Got sunburned for the first time in over a year. Haven't done a ton of peaks but the view from Lone Peak is the best I've seen. I really liked the severe exposure on the summit and the view of the cottonwood canyons.

spengySecond Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


A buddy and I climbed from Jacob's Ladder. We started early, so it was real nice going up. Busy day on the mountain - a family group of about 10 people made it to the peak just after we did. The jacob's ladder trail is dry, dusty, steep, and unpleasant for a descent in the afternoon.

But it was nice to stand on top of Lone Peak again.

highpeakskierFirst Big Wall Trad Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2008


A great experience, climbed 2 routes, The Center Thumb and The Lowe Route. Both were excellent, the crux on The Center Thumb is a very exposed lay back move using a finger crack, unforgettable!

This was the second time to the summit, first time was in January 2008, we made a ski ascent via Big Willow.

sparkgapValley floor to summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 1975
I lived in the shadow of Lone Peak my entire life to age 18. When I returned home from the service, my cousin and I decided to climb to the top from my home in Draper. We carried backpacks and camped one night below the peak and reached the summit the next day.
The day is approximate, the month and year are correct.
