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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rocky AlpsRoute Climbed: Jacobs Ladder  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008

Rocky Alps

We took 10 hours (with some long breaks), taking Jacobs Ladder. The granite in the cirque and on the summit ridge made for some great climbing, and it felt rewarding sitting on top of the tiny summit. The descent back down Jacobs Ladder was a little hard on the knees. See "Monarch of the Wasatch" trip report for details.
