|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.|

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

|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.

|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.|

|9/15/2013 Via Cherry/ Bear Canyons past the Outlaw Cabin to the granite rock formations known as the "Half Pipe". Followed the ridge from there up and down to the summit. 8th ascent and I don't think I've gone the same way twice. |
1/26/2013 Winter ascent with the Wasatch Mountain Club. First ascent of Lone Peak in the winter. Truly an amazing experience. The approach was by way of Cherry Canyon to Enniss Peak and on.
10/14/2012 Via Jacobs Ladder. Climbed with WMC. A fair amount of snow on the trail and summit ridge made for an exciting climb.
7/28/2012 Via Cherry Canyon Logging Trail/ Bear Canyon.
6/29/2012 Via Jacobs Ladder.
10/1/2011 Via Jacobs Ladder.
8/25/2009 Via Jacobs Ladder. On my 31st birthday.
8/14/2000 Via Jacobs Ladder. As part of a backpack with my dad.

|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!

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.|

|Summited via Jacobs Ladder with Sp'er Aldocious and another friend. Wow! Beautiful place. There is definately some "airy" spots on that final ridge.|

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).|

|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.|
