scgrantAgassiz/ Hayden  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2016


Hiked up Agassiz from Hayden Pass. From Agassiz did the fun traverse over to Hayden. A few tricky sections to negotiate on the ridge, but not too bad. Great day getting two 12er's in the Uintas.

Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2001


Climbed as part of backpacking class at Snow College. Camped in Naturalist Basin at Jordan Lake and did this a quick day hike. Closest I've ever been to a mountain goat!

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2014


Traversed the ridge after Hayden. Lots of small-large Uinta boulder hoping along the ridge before pausing at the saddle for the rain clear out. Scrambled to the top pretty quickly for fear of more rain on its way but was greeted by blue skies at the top. There were hundreds of sheep in the basin and there baaahs echoed throughout the ridge and summits. Really fun day.

kteichertBeautiful day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2014


From Highline trail to the south ridge. Perfect day had the cloud cover the whole way to the south ridge. Sun came out for the summit. Then enjoyed a sunset through the trees on the way out. Started around 2 pm and finished around 6 pm. Was a perfect day for this one. Loved the views of Hayden, Kletting and A1 from the summit of this guy. What a way to spend a Sunday.

First climbed up Hayden, then traversed the ridge to East Hayden. Descended into the basin and across to Agassiz before returning to the car. RT was a little more than 8 hours.

Climbed on a beautiful fall day- the valleys below were ablaze with turning aspens.

The ridgeline connecting these two peaks is worth the hike all on its own!

A long traverse from Spread Eagle Peak. Descended the south ridge, then made a cross country traverse back to Scudder Lake and the Highline Trail. Didn't see anyone until near Scudder Lake.

ericwillhiteJust barely a 1000 prominence peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2010


Got to the northwest face about the same time I could put away my headlamp. Had to get up and down due to time issues, had to be home by 11 a.m. Boring hike until the last 200 feet on the NW ridge. O yes, it was my birthday too. Route map and pics at http://www.willhiteweb.com/uinta_mountains/agassiz/highland_trailhead_195.htm

boojemfantastic hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 1997
Climbed a number of years ago by cutting of the trail near Scudder Lake. I enjoyed going cross country through the forest and meadows almost as much as summiting the peak. I would love to go back soon and do the trip over to Hayden Peak at the same time.

apachedinoFun Notches  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


The approach from Hayden Pass is by far prefered, the two "notches" encountered provide both interesting solid scrambling and a perfect framing for the lakes below with Spread Eagle in the background. After ascending we descended to the saddle to the west and then down to the forest to hook up with the highline trail without much difficulty, a great climb with good weather.

seanpeckhamUp West Ridge, down gully to Naturalist Basin  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2006


Turned off the Highline trail and hiked directly up the ridge. On the way down, turned off the ridge and descended a gully to Naturalist Basin, stopped by Blue Lake, and came around back out the Highline trail. Went with the people who three days prior had become my parents-in-law. Nice peak; it is actually my first 12,000-er (the first of hopefully many higher ones to come, but most of my experience is in the Wasatch). A month previous, I had gotten engaged in the basin on the other side, amidst great views of snow filling the gullies between the cliffs that form its eastern (as far as I remember) flanks.

I have been up this peak from Christmas Meadows several times, but in August, 2004, I did a loop run from the Highline TH, going to Naturalist Basin, ascending the ridge to Spread Eagle and then running down the ridge to Agassiz. From Agassiz I descended NW and reconnected with the Highlind Trail somewhere near Scudder Lake. I tried to repeat August 2006 but was chased off the ridge by hail and lightning.

pbogenawesome but steep!  Sucess!


This hike was a lot more difficult than anticipated. With only ~ 2,200' of elevation I thought it would be a walk in the park. But don't let it fool you, this is one steep hike that I found very challenging. But it is also a very awesome mountain to summit. Go early to avoid storms, you're above tree line for a long time.

First peak with no real trail. Great secluded peak in the High Uintas that is easy to get to.

grandwazooRoute Climbed: Hayden Pass - Agassiz Loop Date Climbed: Oct 25th 2003  Sucess!


Near 0 degree temps along the ridgeline, had the place to myself. Found the ridgeline to be very interesting with the addition of the down climbing section.
