Scott Wesemann

This is my favorite peak in the Wasatch. The cirque is AWESOME and it is amazing that you can have this type of alpine experience so close to SLC. Had a close encounter with a cougar at the top of Draper ridge in 97. This is the first "real" peak that I attempted (1990) and the experience made me hooked for life! (See trip report)

3/13/09 Winter ascent with Matthew Van Horn via Cherry Canyon. This was one of the best days I have ever had in the Wasatch. 7 hours up. The ridge was very dodgy and just after the ‘Big Bad Rock’ the steep snow was very windblown with a HUGE cornice on the other side. I elected to stop, while Matt got the balls of steel award for the day by getting to the summit.

This was the first of the really big Wasatch mountains that I climbed, and also my favorite. I probably could have used some trekking poles on the relentlessly steep climb up (and down) Jacob's Ladder. It's an epic climb, and definitely worth it.

Nice winter climb. Nice in summer too.

First time on the peak was September 1982 at eight years old.

Failed on a Draper Ridge attempt, but summited via Jacobs Ladder in '93. Steep, hot, dry approach, but the final scramble is thrilling...high exposure! Wonderful summit block, tiny, big drop-offs. One of, if not THE classic peak of the Wasatch.

Great 6 hour climb to the top. 100% snow cover began suddenly at 8,800 feet. The climb up the 800ft high cirque was impressive. The slope got up to 45-50 degrees, with solid scrambling on granite averaging an even steeper slope higher up before the final mixed climbing along the ridgeline.

Wonderful trip to the top - my second time. It was a perfectly clear day - views were great.
